Come on Baby Mack
This is a GoFundMe for Heather and Joey Thomas to help with their medical bills and expenses for their daughter, Mackenzie.
Most of Mackenzie's life has been spent drawing blood, changing formulas, doing CT scans, ultrasounds, MRI's, X-rays, and a spinal tap. Now, with genetics involved and biopsies ordered, they are preparing the family for the worst possible outcome. A rare genetic disease is suspected.
It was a long and tiresome journey to get Mackenzie here. They have gone through hormone injections, and miscarriages, but still, on September 12, 2016, Mackenzie Rae was born via emergency C-section and she brought more light and joy to this world that day then we could ever have imagined.
We are not sure when Mackenzie will be able to go home but when she does she will need intense physical and speech therapy daily. As of right now her prognosis with her growth means she will be leaving the hospital with a feeding tube in her stomach in order to give her the proper amount of nutrition she will need to thrive.
Heather and Joey are some of the most loving and deserving people we know. They have done nothing but selflessly put their lives on hold to care for and be with their baby. We have watched our friends go from happy, excited new parents, to tired and broken.
So on behalf of Heather and Joey and little baby Mack, We are asking for anything you can give to help this family through this time and make their future a little bit easier, and keep it a little bit brighter.
We wish we knew why instead of celebrating milestones at home, they are watching Mackenzie live her life in a hospital bed. The good things, though few and far between these days, still exist. This little girl lights up each and every one of our lives.
We thank God for blessing us all with Mackenzie Rae Thomas.
This is what we have been praying for!! Mackenzie needs our help more than ever for her journey to Texas!!
Shes got her fists in position because shes a fighter! God bless :)

My name is Tammy am I the one who made that blanket for baby Mack. When I found out she passed I cryed for her and u guys. I worked with Lisa and she kepted me updated becouse that's how much I do care. Every night I went to bed waking up praying for that beautiful baby There is no words to say to bring that beautiful little girl back to ur arms the only thing I can do is say am so sorry. Baby Mack loved u as a mom and Dad she knew how much I loved her there's no doubt. Just remember this she an angle watching out for both of u. She doesn't want u to be sad she would tell u that she's in another place. One day u and Dad will see her again not in this life but up there. Again am so sorry
JT, Heather, Mackenzie we are praying for you and you family. May the Lord comfort you. Jeff and Cindy Sprague
Home for a couple days and now they are back at Hollywood Children's Hospital. Please pray for our baby girl Mackenzie Rae and her Mom and Daddy.
Thank you everyone for all you have given to help baby Mackenzie. The best gifts are not the ones you receive but the ones you give. What seems so small to you is big to the one who receives. One day we will tell Mackenzie all about the people who loved on her and prayed for her, those who stood in the gap for her parents. God bless you all for your generosity, prayers and most of all for the love of a little girl. Mackenzie Rae Thomas
