Media for Mackenzie

My family has worked hard to channel our pain into creating change for Mackenzie. We have been lucky enough along the way that some kind media outlets, journalists and fellow bloggers have allowed us to use their voice to shout Mackenzie's name from the roof top. It has also allowed us to spread our message and campaign for the Australian Government to bring in routine and subsidised genetic carrier testing in pre and early pregnancy. 

Thank you to all who have given us their platform xx
