Mackenzie’s step-mother feels so fortunate to have had such a wonderful daughter. “Mackenzie had a huge heart and was always giving of herself in so many ways.” To continue honoring Mackenzie’s giving spirit, Dana was the impetus to start the free clinic Mac frequently mentioned. With emotional support from family and friends, Dana completed the many tasks needed to start Mackenzie’s Place, becoming the driving force behind free health care in Damascus and surrounding areas. Dana is excited to work with her husband on this special endeavor and knows that Mackenzie is very proud of what her parents are doing for others.
