In September, 2007, Mackenzie McCarter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, FOUGHT the fight of her life… and WON!
As the years have gone by, and the check ups have gone well… Melissa and Aaron, (Mackenzie’s parents) were starting to feel that this nightmare was behind them…
Now, in May, 2012… Doctors confirmed their worst possible fear… Mackenzie’s Cancer has returned.
Mackenzie, her mom and dad, and her brother Jake are ready to FIGHT… and put this ‘Monster’ behind them for good!! But they can NOT do this without US!!
Mackenzie now faces TWO and a HALF years of treatment once she is in remission, in addition to Cranial and Orbital Radiation. Melissa has had to take a leave of absence from work. The McCarter family has a LONG road ahead of them.
Join us this Saturday for our Smile for the Cure event (benefiting BCA–CV) … Our kids will host a lemonade stand and sell wristbands to help raise money for our friend, 9 year old MacKenzie McCarter . Come out and show your support for these two amazing causes!
