Massey Yardley Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat Donates $2 Million to Holy Cross Health

Herb Yardley of Massey Yardley CDJRF is all too familiar with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). When his late wife, Catherine Yardley, was first diagnosed with the disease they didn’t know where to turn. While treatment can help provide a better quality of life, there is no cure for the condition.

“My wife Catherine died from COPD. Watching her struggle to breathe was difficult for her family,” said Herb Yardley in making the decision. “COPD is the third leading cause of death and is an unknown and undertreated disease. We hope to begin correcting that by establishing a pulmonary center at Holy Cross Health.”
The $2 million donation will establish the Catherine Yardley Pulmonary Center of Excellence at Holy Cross Health, a non-profit hospital. This donation will provide necessary funding for Holy Cross to conduct comprehensive research, advance clinically effective treatments of COPD and other lung diseases, spark the creation of a new lab focused on research and education, and allow for a number of enhancements to already established bronchoscopy labs.
