MacKenzie's story

MacKenzie is a 15-year old from East Machias. She and her family are grateful to the team in the neonatal intensive care unit for saving her life after she was born three months early. This little two pound miracle would spend her first Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day in the NICU.

Photo-Feb-21,-12-57-51.jpgJay Hagerty, MD, neonatologist, also left a mark on the family. MacKenzie’s mom Wendy remembers Dr. Hargerty as “An incredible doctor who will always hold a special place in our hearts. He saved MacKenzie’s life when she was so sick and little. The first to call her feisty! She was over two months old before the mystery of why she couldn’t breathe on her own was solved. When the results came in, he was as excited as we were to have answers and a plan to get her better. His bedside manner and calm quiet nature are so reassuring to families. I can’t imagine having gone through all that we went through during those first 100 days without him in our corner.”
