A former co-worker and good friend of mine's daughter has been fighting lukemia (sp) for approximately 3 years now. McKenzie was right around 6 yrs old. She has been in and out of the hospital for the last 3 years and mostly in the hospital for the last year and a half. She was one tough cookie and fought very hard and very valiently. She never complained of being sick, she played soccer when she could with the other kids and was actually pretty good. She definately had a big tough heart and fought very admirably. She has gone through multiple surgeries and finally lost her battle last night in her mother's arms.
