The Story

Dear Friends and Family,

As you are likely aware, 11-year old McKenzie Lowe, daughter of Ron and Dianne Lowe, and sister of Casey Lowe, has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.  Treatment consists of radiation therapy and an experimental chemotherapy-like agent, and requires McKenzie and her family to travel almost daily to Boston to receive care.  The goal of this website is to assist the Lowe family in covering the sustantial medical costs that continue to accumulate while also ensuring that McKenzie and her family enjoy the next year together to the fullest, as treatment is experimental in nature. 

In addition to the opportunity to give via this website, please join family and friends at a second fundraiser scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 16th at 6:00PM at the Lowell Lodge of Elks (40 Old Ferry Road  Lowell, MA 01854).  The evening will consist of live music, raffles, DJ, dancing and a cash bar. Ticket cost is $10.00 per person and can be purchased online via this site or at the door the night of the event.
