Mackenzie

Mackenzie started having seizures at 10 weeks old and was diagnosed with Sturge-Weber Syndrome. At seven months old, she had the left side of her brain removed. Twelve days later, she needed to return to the hospital to have a VP shunt placed. Due to her surgeries, she is hemiplegic on the right side as well as a limited field of vision and hearing problems. She has to wear an AFO and hand brace. Mackenzie is very brave, and despite everything she has been through, she still finds ways to solve problems and overcome problems that come her way. Mackenzie is always smiling and upbeat. She enjoys being outside, dancing, and singing. She absolutely LOVES Disney and her dog Beauty. Mackenzie's parents have always tried to make her feel like she can do the same things any other child can do. Having her Dream of going to Disney where she can visit the characters, see the sights, and take part in the rides the same as any other child will help accomplish this.

    My older sister, Rebekah, has a rare medical condition called Tuberous Sclerosis, and as a result she has also had to deal with seizures at various times throughout her life. In 2011, her dream to visit Disney World was fulfilled and our whole family was able to go with and meet all of the characters. I wish your dreams come true as well Mackenzie! You are a strong, beautiful, and brave girl and your story inspires me to pursue happiness and positivity despite any situation I may go through in life! Your light shines bright! Keep on dancing, smiling, and singing! ❤️ 💕 💕
