Why Mackenzie wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I was at a dance competition three years ago when they stopped to talk about a dancer who had passed away from cancer. Her studio was there that day. They took up a collection. After that, winning a trophy seemed to be the least important thing I could do. I want to help anyway I can.
