MaKenzie, my hero


This is MaKenzie. She is my hero. She is just 2 years old and is (I can hardly write this) most likely dying. The doctors give her a few weeks at most and days at the worst.
She is the little girl I stitched the zebra print ornament for. Just a couple of months ago they thought the cancer was receding and treatment was working. Now she is at home, all treatment stopped.
She has an unknown cancer. And it breaks my heart.
Not only does it break my heart, but my husband's heart also. My DH is a big guy, a tough on the outside, never show weakness and certainly never cry guy.
But little MaKenzie, on the only time she ever saw him, gave him the biggest smile and blew a kiss to him. I haven't seen that big a smile on his face since our wedding day. But now, I see sadness in his eyes. He talks about her often. And wonders why.
And now, every day, we pray. We pray for God's will to be done. We pray for the family to have strength. We pray that something can be done and we can see a miracle occur.
But I think that this little girl was given her angel wings long before she came to earth. I read that in the guest book on her website. And it fits. She is a little angel.
So please, tonight, say a prayer for MaKenzie and her family. And let's keep fighting and stitching for a cure!

What a beautiful little angel. Stories like hers just makes me more thankful that my 3 grandchildren are healthy. My heart just cries for her family. If the end comes MaKenzie will be with her maker and out of pain but her family will need all the help and support we can give them. My prayers will go out to them through my tears.

Oh, hon you made me cry. My little girl is 2 as well and it breaks my my heart to know another little one is not the jumping, carefree child mine is. My heart goes out to her and her family. May her family find peace in whatever GOD decides for her.

Heart-rending - we don't understand why these things happen and never will, as it's out of our hands. We can only do our best to keep their time here precious and memorable. Prayers for little Mackenzie and her family and for you both.

God bless her sweet little soul. This breaks my heart as well. I can not even imagine how her parents are living through the knowledge of her possibly leaving them soon. I am
praying very hard that God blesses all their lives with a wonderful miracle. Sending you and dh hugs and will keep you all in my heart and prayers.

Oh that gave me goosebumps and a huge lump in my throat. That poor angel and her poor family. Hoping that she makes a recovery and stuns everyone!
