Baby Mackenzie's memory lives on in East Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn (WVLT) -- We all remember the story of Baby Mackenzie.

The tiny East Tennessee baby who found out she had cancer when she was just a few months old.

4 month old Mackenzie passed last year from rhabdoid cancer, and now a foundation named after her, is raising awareness of childhood cancer.

Today, members from that organization were on hand at Children's Hospital to hand out gifts to children.

"If we can give them a bright ray of sunshine in their day and bring awareness to these children, that is our goal," Jenny Shreeve, of the Baby Mackenzie Foundation

The gifts included teddy bears, toys, coloring books, DVDs and CDs.

Shreeve says one of the most important things to Mackenzie's family was being with her while she was sick.

They say, every family should be able to do that.
