Mackenzie

The Name

Our team started a robot naming tradition when a friend of the team, Mackenzie, was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome.  She was 15 years old at the time, and required a bone marrow transplant to treat her rapidly worsening condition.  We wanted to show our support and help her find a match, so we named our robot after her and shared her story.  Mackenzie was thankfully able to find a match and make a recovery, but we wanted to continue to help others.  Every year since then, we have named our robot after a different person in need of a stem cell transplant.  We share their stories at events to spread awareness and encourage people aged 17-35 to do a cheek swab and join the registry to help find life-saving matches.
