Hello Ellen and team - This is a picture of 17 year old Mackenzy Larson who has been battling cancer since she was 9. She is a beautiful young lady who has been such an inspiration for so many. Her smile and positive attitude are contagious. She is now facing her 7th occurrence of cancer, which is inoperable. Kenzy still fights and still smiles even through the tears. Kenzy has been a warrior throughout her journey, even after losing her leg to cancer. She received special approval to take a medication not yet approved by FDA. The hope was this would help not only Kenzy but other children battling cancer in the United States. The drug is already used with success in other countries.
None of us know how much time we have left but for Kenzy and her family, this has become a much more present thought. Kenzy continues to receive radiation treatments in hopes of giving her more time.
Kenzy is looking forward to prom in a couple weeks. Something so normal for many of us will be a huge celebration for her.
But Kenzy’s also would love to meet Ellen. She loves you, Ellen, and loyally watches you. Please help make Kenzy’s dream come true.
