Mackenzie Walsh Benefit

We are writing today seeking help for a family that is encountering mounting medical bills.
On Nov. 20, 2012, Mackenzie Walsh arrived in this world 13 weeks early. Just 12 inches long and weighing 1 lb. 4 oz., she spent six months in the NICU. Of that, 60 days was spent on a ventilator, which has lead to chronic lung disease. Today she is on oxygen full time. Mackenzie was also born with bilateral congenital glaucoma, a very rare birth defect. She had four surgeries while in the NICU; three eye surgeries and an inguinal hernia surgery. She does not have vision in her left eye. Her right eye has remained stable due to the eye drop medication she is on three times a day. She needs two more eye surgeries soon, only to be followed by a lifetime of more.
