Our Amazing KICKcancER Athletes
Mackenzie has been snowboarding since she learned to stand, not even a year old the first time she strapped on her first board in Lake Tahoe. She was trying to keep up with her 3 older siblings who are also competitive snowboarders, and collectively 11x USA National Champions.
When Mackenzie was diagnosed with cancer, she was ripped away from her active life of snowboarding, skateboarding, surfing and just being a crazy, funny, silly 3 year old kid. At diagnosis, she had all cancer cells in her marrow...no normal cells. So, she went from being the most spunky toddler we had ever met to bed ridden and too weak to stand.
A month or two into her treatment, the folks of Make a Wish Foundation asked us to discuss with Kenzie her wishes and dreams. The first thing she said to us, with nearly a whisper and too weak to stand due to the dexamethasone, chemo and cancer crippling her body, was “I wanna go snowboarding”.
