Our Winners, 1 year on – McKenzie John, Child of Courage (U13) 2022
Since the Child of Wales awards 2022 Mckenzie still has some ongoing treatments such as Growth Hormone Therapy and he will remain on thyroxine medication for the duration of his life. McKenzie has had 52 general anesthetics to date and still has 6 monthly MRI scans.
Despite all of this, he has had an amazing year since winning. He has been on holiday's to Spain and Germany, and he went on the trip of a lifetime to Orlando with the charity Dreamflight. He went all on his own with the charity in October 2022 for 10 days, and made lots of new friends and had a fantastic time.
Rhian, McKenzie's mum said "The Child of Wales Awards was the best night we have ever had. It was talked about by our family for weeks. Every single detail was perfect. Thank you ever so much for this amazing experience."
