Dancing with my daughter

Some days, as hard as you try, it just sucks being a parent.

And then other days, you realise just how damn lucky you are, and wonder how on earth other families manage to make it work.

Meet McKenzie.


She has a life threatening condition called Mitochondrial Disease, meaning she has decreasing control over her body as her internal systems are slowly compromised by the illness.

This is the kind of kid who obviously requires a huge amount of additional care and support from the people around her.

Needless to say, not everyone could step up to the job, but as you can see in this home video, her dad is obviously a pretty special dude.

Seriously, if that smile doesn't make you want to be a better dad, you're probably on the wrong website.

We've looked everywhere for his name to give this guy some decent credit. So if anyone out there has any more details on Kenzie's dad, let us know.

In the meantime, click here if you'd like to donate to McKenzie's family. Maybe we can help pay some of her medical bills so she can keep dancing with her awesome dad.
