Mackenzie is a vibrant, sassy and fun loving 14 year old living with a rare form of muscular dystrophy. She has been non-ambulatory since birth. Mackenzie would like to have a little bit more independence, including transferring in and out of the car. I’ve always just picked her up.

Mackenzie is an active member of the Arizona MDA. She is a member of her school’s National Junior Honor Society, and volunteers her time after school to help clean the campus and tutor other students. Donations to Help Hope Live in Mackenzie’s honor will help her purchase motorized transfer seat for her vehicle. No amount is too small to help! Please share her campaign with friends and family. Thank you so much for your support!

We wanted to say thank you for all the overwhelming love and support from friends, family, and even strangers! After raising almost half of our goal,. we went ahead and ordered the seat from Braun in the summer of 2020. After lots of back and forth due to COVID, we made the decision to save all funds raised in the hopes of eventually purchasing a wheelchair accessible van, so that if and when Mackenzie is able to drive- she can truly have the independence she deserves. We are so thankful for being able to share Mackenzie’s story and will update as soon as we have some good news!!!
