Welcome to the Yards for Yeards team page!
On Saturday, October 21, we are participating in the Race for Every Child by walking 5000 yards in honor of our brave daughter, Yeardley, who showcased willpower and strength far beyond her years while fighting for her life as a result of hMPV and pneumonia in February 2023.
After two different hospital emergency rooms confirmed Yeardley’s condition was too severe for them to treat, we were taken by helicopter to Children’s Hospital, where she was put on life support for one week. Yeardley was pumped full of oxygen, steroids, and antibiotic treatments to help her body run on its own again, and we are so thankful to the brilliant and compassionate team of doctors and nurses at Children’s Hospital for saving her life.
We would love for you to join or support our team. Register or donate to our team or any team member here. And please spread the word by sharing the link to our team’s page on social media or via email.
