Funeral Arrangements Set For Baby Mackenzie

Jefferson County (WVLT) - Funeral arrangements are now complete for baby Mackenzie.

In August, Mackenzie was only three-months-old when doctors diagnosed her with a rare form of cancer found in only about 100 children world wide each year.

Mackenzie Grace McMahan died from rabdoid cancer Saturday morning at Children's Hospital.

A fundraiser that had already been planned for her that same day at the Point Restaurant in Dandridge turned into a celebration of baby Mackenzie's touching life.

The McMahan family will receive friends later today, from 6-8pm at Farrar's Funeral Home in Jefferson City.

Funeral services will follow from 8-9pm.

A graveside service will be held Tuesday at 1:00pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made to the Mackenzie McMahan fund at the little Mackenzie website.
