About us

Founded in memory of Mackenzie Clyde, we are an all-volunteer childhood cancer organization with a mission to spread a little joy into the lives of our kids and teens fighting the beast that is pediatric cancer. Mackenzie spent a third of her life inside hospital rooms as she bravely fought brain cancer. During that time, she was frequently blessed with items that helped her pass the time during radiation and chemotherapy treatments. She knew that not all kids were as fortunate as her, and so she began to collect toys and gift cards for other kids and teens, bringing them in periodically for the toy closet at the MACC Fund Cancer Center at Children's Wisconsin during her own treatments. Mackenzie was full of grace and wise beyond her years, thinking of others even during her own horrendous battle. 

We cannot think of a better way to honor her legacy than continue her work of trying to give generously to our children and teen cancer patients. We hope you will join us in blessing these small but mighty fighters. 

There are many ways to join us at Brave Like Mackenzie and support the childhood cancer fighter and families that we hold in our hearts with love. Please check out our "Donate" page to pick the best fit for you. 

We have multiple events throughout the year that we would LOVE for your support with. Please reach out to Courtney re: opportunities.

Until there's a cure, we will support our brave warriors, sending love and generosity their way. It's simple... everything we do, everything we collect, goes directly back to the families.
