Sweet Tea For Sweet Mackenzie

Knoxville (WVLT) -- The idea was to sell sweet tea, for a sweet baby girl.

Mackenzie Grace McMahan is only three months old, but for the last month she's lived at Children's Hospital in Knoxville.

Doctor's say she is suffering from a rare form of cancer that left a softball sized tumor on one of her kidneys and spots on her liver and lungs.

That's why friend's and relatives are selling sweet tea.

They want to raise money so her family can afford to pay for her treatments and still make the daily trip from Jefferson County to visit her.

"Her mother and her grandmother can spend as much time as possible," said Cindy Curington, Mackenzie's aunt. "You never know, so you want to spend as much time with her as you can and I don't want them to have to worry about anything else."

Aunt Cindy is planning more fund raising events for the future.

She hopes to eventually help Mackenzie's mother move closer to the hospital.
