McKenzie Carey, a 12-year-old from Georgia was diagnosed at 18 months old with mitochondrial disease, which affects the cells’ ability to generate proper energy and can result in bodily system failure. The life-threatening condition has made McKenzie non-verbal and unable to walk, but her mother, Tammy, told CBS 6 News that McKenzie is very much aware of what’s happening around her.

McKenzie had the crowd erupting in applause as her father, Mike — sporting a Georgia Bulldogs baseball cap — lifted her from her wheelchair, spun her in the air and danced around stage to Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”

To support McKenzie and her family, visit her fundraising page.
