I used to dress the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles....seriously.  I worked on movie sets, and even made it in the final dance scene of TMNT 2 Secret of the Ooze.  I traveled the country, the world, and loved life.  There was no keeping me down.  I married the love of my life, have 3 amazing children, ran a massage therapy business for 17 years, and then......
In 2010 I contracted a rare Group A Strep infection, flesh eating bacteria, and lost my arms and legs.

It's OK.  I'm OK.  I have a wonderful family, who supports my every need, but I want to return to my role of "mama bear," and make my own way.  I've rediscovered my love of art, and (after much experimentation) have created a small business selling artwork, doing craft shows, and hosting paint parties.  I sold over 300 paintings in 2014!

Your pledge to me is an investment in the American dream.  I am a woman owned, American made, mom and pop, small business.  I don't want a hand out.  I want to WORK!  My artwork has been featured on CNN, NECN, WFAA, the Houston Chronicle, Fox, and many others.  Your patronage will help me get my business off the ground, and return to the freedom that we should all enjoy.  It will help me to raise my kids into the people I know they are.  It will help me return to being a full-fledged partner in my marriage.

Thank you, in advance, for your support.  Your love will be repaid many times over, through me.

With Gratitude,
Katy Hayes
