Meet Our Champion

We’re so excited to introduce you to MacKenzie, a 14-year old from Machias, and our 2020 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Champion.

MacKenzie and her family are all too familiar with how important it is to have a specialty children’s hospital nearby, even if “nearby” means almost 90 miles one way. MacKenzie spent 100 days in Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit after she was born several weeks early on November 16, 2005.

Over the next year, we’ll further introduce you to MacKenzie, and share more of her story. She’ll join us at events to inspire hope and courage, and to remind us all how lucky we are to have this incredible hospital in our back yard.

Welcome to Team Bangor, MacKenzie! We’re excited to have you join our Champions family!
