When I first started my rehabilitation at to the Kennedy Krieger Institute in June of 2005 there was only a couple of patients in their ICSI restorative therapy program, which officially had not open yet. MacKenzie was an inpatient and I was an outpatient, but our therapy times overlapped. So we had a lot of time to hang out and play games. She showed me a few things when it came to different games, especially Guess Where, a game I rarely won against her. During the winter, Dr. Wise Young came down to Washington, DC to give a speech at the Neurotrauma Society. He decided to give a speech at a restaurant and invited members of the Care Cure community to attend. While getting out of my car, I saw little MacKenzie wheeling up the street to the restaurant. After Dr. Wise Young’s incredibly scientific presentation, he asked if there were any questions. MacKenzie raised her hand and asked a really great question pertaining to stem cell research. I was so proud of her. Getting to know MacKenzie has truly inspired me. To learn more about MacKenzie and her foundation, Miracles May Come, click here
