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

I want to be an outspoken voice for children fighting cancer. This awful disease has affected many close to me in my family, so I know first hand the heartache that comes with cancer. I want to spread awareness and be a voice for a cure. Together we can fight and together we can win the battle against cancer.
