The family and friends of McKenzie Shwery are uniting to raise money to help out with medical and traveling expenses.

McKenzie Shwery has been in the University of Iowa Children's Hospital since Wednesday, April 18, 2012 (birth). She was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension and was placed on ECMO, a heart/lung bypass machine. She is the second baby who has been placed on ECMO TWICE, and the FIRST to survive. McKenzie has come a long way in her recovery, but still has a way to go. She will be more than likely discharged after the first of the year. McKenzie's Mom, Jessica, has been staying at the Helen K. Rossi Guest House, the hotel hospital, this whole time, while McKenzie's Dad, Joshua, has been traveling back and forth for work.
