Thread: Well Wishes For MacKenzie

    Well Wishes For MacKenzie

    Some of you have heard the story of MacKenzie Clare, a 10 year old beautiful young lady from Virginia who has sustained chest down paralysis in a recent car accident with her family. I am in contact with her mom at the rehab center in Baltimore, as well as her social worker. I plan on visiting MacKenzie there next week sometime. Please post well wishes for MacKenzie here, so that I can print the thread and show her how she can see it online as it grows. Now is the time to instill every hope and show her CareCure at its best. Some have already gotten in touch with her mom, for that I am grateful...Mary

    Dear MacKenzie,

    I was also paralyzed in a car accident. I know this is a very difficult, scary time. It does get easier, just take things one day at a time. Fight hard!!

    Big Hug.

    Hi MacKenzie,

    I was injured in a car accident when I was 8 years old (and I was also a Girl Scout!). I'm now 35 years old and I have a daughter who is almost 8. I googled your name and found an article about you. In it, it said that you were looking forward to getting home to see your kitties. I remember how I couldn't wait to get home to see my cat and dog!

    Right now, I have 4 cats, 2 dogs, and my daughter has a hamster. It's a lot of animals, but my daughter and I both love all of them so much.

    When my daughter starts school again in the fall, I'll be taking my dog Trudy to the Children's Hospital for visits with the patients. Animals are, in my opionion, wonderful therapy.

    I'll be sending you a card soon. When I was injured, the internet wasn't around. My grandma put an ad in the paper requesting cards and get well wishes to be sent to me at the hospital. It was always fun to receive a stack of cards from people who didn't even know me!

    I hope you get to go home soon!
    Take care,

    Hey, Miss MacKenzie!

    My best friend is paralyzed too. He's decided for the most part to smile no matter what...and to trust God.

    My name is Teena and his name is Russ.

    I am not paralyzed, but I have a birth defect of my hip, and arthritis and a limp.

    I hope you have a great day...and you can surprise Miss Mary with a big smile from me to HER...

    And here's an extra hug for YOU in case you need it...{{{{{MacKenzie}}}}}

    Take care, and God bless you and your family,

    Teena Barker

    You're are one strong young lady! I hope that things are going as well as the can be for you!

    I was also hurt in a car accident, only I was 17 when it happened, just over two years ago. I missed my dog too! Since I got home, I got a new doggie, a chihuahua. I am sure your kitties miss you just as much as you miss them.

    I hope you stay bright and smiley all through your recovery!

    My 13 year old daughter, who is also a girl scout, was paralyzed in a car accident almost 5 years ago. I know Heather sure missed her cat when she was in the hospital. She also loved to pick on the nurses though.

    Things seem really tough right now but they do get better. Heather still rides horse, drives a 4-wheeler and does pretty much just about anything else. She just does it on wheels now. We also have lots of animals now, cats, dogs, rabbits, chickens and horses that she loves to be with.

    Take care and know that we are all praying for you and your family.

    Keep smiling!!
