Mackenzie Joy
"The IWK has done so much for Mackenzie and we certainly wouldn't be where we are without the incredible care and support that we've received there.” – Renena Joy, Mackenzie’s mom

Sharing a little of her beautiful joy with the world!

Ten year old Mackenzie Joy of Middle Sackville, Nova Scotia, has a unique view of the world and has discovered a way to share it – through the lens of her camera. After receiving a Nikon camera for Christmas, Mackenzie quickly mastered its settings and started capturing images. Now she’s using that talent to support the IWK Health Centre.

Mackenzie was born with a chromosomal abnormality which results in learning challenges and she also has ADHD. She’s had multiple visits and several surgeries at the IWK in her young life. 

I like to raise money for the IWK because I want to help them take care of people. - Mackenzie Joy

Mackenzie has raised an astounding $4,265 selling her work through her various photography shows and her Facebook page. The generosity and thoughtfulness of our young donors, like Mackenzie, is what helps make the IWK a centre of excellence in the Maritimes.  

Thank you for your support Mackenzie.

Excellence is in your hands.
