I first heard about "Baby McKenzie" Mackenzie Grace McMahan last summer while picking up a pizza in Dandridge. While I never met her, I certainly rooted for her and learned more about what took her life: Rhabdoid Cancer. In January, Children's Hospital remodeled the cancer clinic and play area. The Baby McKenzie Foundation is undertaking efforts to raise awareness and funds to battle this rare form of cancer. They are having a Bike Rally at the 411 Biker Depot in Maryville on June 28th. I met with Cindy Currington and Cindy Poe at Cowboy's Seafood this afternoon. They are planning future fund raisers and have found a doctor who is willing to research Rhabdoid Cancer.
