McKenzie was born on April 20, 2002 with a genetic mitochondrial disease. This is a potentially fatal disease. She is now 16 years old. We were told she would not live past 5 years old but by the grace of God she is still with us today.. We keep her busy through different activities that she enjoys. We believe keeping her active gives her a purpose, a reason to live. We recently moved to Melbourne Florida in order to be closer to her therapy and No limits Academy for special needs that she will be attending this Fall. We believe God opened these amazing doors for us to get the proper care our daughter needs. With that being said insurance does not cover all her treatments and now that we are in a different state we are having to change everything over including part of her insurance. This takes time. We are moving into an apartment in August. The housing market around here is crazy. We are hoping to have a house built around our daughters needs eventually. In the meantime there are a number of things our daughter needs, including modifications to my van where kenzie can sit in her wheelchair in the van. The older she gets the heavier she gets and it's getting harder and harder for me to lift her. Also insurance only covers a portion of her therapy. Any donation would be greatly appreciated and much needed at this Time especially with this new journey we are on to make Kenzie's life much better. God bless you all.. Phil 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." This is the promise that God gives us that I will always hold close to my heart. 
Jeremiah 29:11
For  I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future

We are still raising money for things Kenzie may need.. She will be having surgery in the next couple of months so there are things we will need for her. Along with her mitochondrial disease diagnosis she also hS scoliosis and her spine is 94% curved so she will be having major surgery soon.. If God puts it in your heart to give, it will be greatly appreciated and we could always use your prayers.
