Meet Mackenzie in North Seattle: veteran, volunteer, survivor

No one expects to be diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at 25—especially not when you have one of the most physically demanding jobs on the planet: Military Police with the U.S. Navy.

It was this journey that brought Mackenzie to Bloodworks: first as a volunteer out of our Silverdale donor center during her treatment and now as a blood collection specialist in North Seattle.

And Mackenzie brings her experience as a cancer survivor to Bloodworks every day, helping donors save the lives of people like her.

She shared her story with us in the video below.

Thank you for your service, Mackenzie!
