Mackenzie McCarter

I am a healthy 14 year old in the 9th grade. When I was 4 years old, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, ALL for short. I underwent 2 years of chemotherapy and went into remission. I was perfectly healthy for 2.5 years, then noticed that my vision was super blurry in one of my eyes. It turned out that my retina had detached because a mass of Leukemia had formed in my eye. It was the end of third grade, and I was diagnosed with relapsed ALL. Another 2 years of radiation treatment and chemo later, I was once again in remission.

Today I am a tennis-playing drummer who is healthy as can be (with some complications, but we don't need to get into that 😊). Throughout my journey, the Leukemia Lymphoma Society has always been there to support me and my family. I've beat cancer twice, but now it is my responsibility to help others in their fight. I've always been taught to give what you take, in one form or another

When wearing my socks, always remember that children with cancer are the most beautiful and tough people you will ever meet.
