McKenna is one of many that lives with Sickle Cell Anemia - S-Beta Positive. Her first major crises occurred when she was 3 years old and it changed our lives forever. Having this life affliction has caused her to build character in ways that simply amaze anyone that knows her. She's learned how to perservere when times are tough, be the light needed when others can't seem to see pass the darkness and found her voice when it appeared that no one was listening.
Unfortunately, Sickle Cell disease has not received the attention and dedication that other diseases have had the pleasure of having. McKenna's heart is to help others and this is one way that she believes can help - and that's by spreading the word through this walk. Please consider helping and supporting her as she lives the fight for herself and others.
