Hallie was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in April 2023, a serious form of cancer originating in the bone marrow and quickly spreading to other parts of the body. Despite a valiant fight, including a bone marrow transplant, Hallie’s condition relapsed, dimming hopes for her recovery.

The Kyed family, including Doug, his wife Jen, and their five-year-old daughter Olivia, stood by Hallie’s side throughout this ordeal. Doug and Jen alternated between hospital visits and caring for Olivia at home, ensuring Hallie was never alone. They cherished their final moments with her, hoping against hope for a miracle.

Doug reminisced about Hallie’s incredible strength and resilience, calling her their “fierce little Hallie Bear.” Yet, he admitted knowing the prognosis was grim after her relapse. The family made the most of their time together, holding onto hope as long as they could.
