Miracle for Mackenzie

Miracle for Mackenzie

Personal message

Mackenzie and her twin sister were born at just 27 weeks and they only weighed 925g and 930g at birth. Mackenzie spent 102 days in NICU and she had many complications. She had her first brain surgery at 3 months old after developing a life threatening condition called Hydrocephalus. Mackenzie is five years old now and she also has Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy and Syringomyelia amongst other complications.

Mackenzie is severely disabled and she is at the physical level of a 3 month old baby, she can't hold her head up or sit or anything. She experiences muscle spasticity which is caused by the Cerbral Palsy and this has caused her left hip to dislocate completely. Her dislocated hip 'pulls' her pelvis skew and this is causing her scoliosis to get worse too. All the money raised will go towards helping us get her to America for SPML surgery (you can read about this on her Facebook page) so that we can make the best out of a bad situation for Mackenzie and hopefully just keep her as comfortable as possible for now. The surgery alone costs $17 000 (R235 000) and that excludes our visas, flights, accommodation etc. We do not know what Mackenzie's future holds but all we want to do is try make her difficult life a little easier and more comfortable for her.

We have been blessed by many kind people wanting to help us raise the funds to get Mackenzie to America so this page will be used and shared by any earth angels wanting to help us. The R28 000 raised from the previous campaign (100 miles for Mackenzie) has been added to this campaign under the 'funds raised offline."


You can follow Mackenzie's journey under 'Miracle Mackenzie' on Facebook.


Thank you so much for all the love and support!
