Mackenzie’s Scholarship

Mackenzie Woelbling was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma and fought through multiple relapses, as well as an additional diagnosis of osteosarcoma. She stole the hearts of many and was an inspiration to all that came to know her. Like any young child she was fun loving, silly, adventurous and loved animals. As she grew older, she developed an even stronger will to fight, always with a positive spirit of perseverance. Mackenzie loved being in school and worked very hard to keep up with her academics. This was not always easy for her, and she and her family took full advantage of the educational opportunities offered by Friends of Kids with Cancer. Her family has chosen to honor her memory by offering a scholarship to an applicant that best exemplifies Mackenzie’s spirit and lust for life, keeping in mind that perseverance and determination in education are most important.

This scholarship is a total of $1,000 for one academic year.
