CCFA: Mackenzie’s Story

McElroy FilmsUncategorized

CCFA stands for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. They are a non-profit organization. There main focus is to bring awareness to those suffering from Crohn’s and Colitis.

In this video CCFA wanted to create a more personal approach. We did this my focusing solely on one young girls story, Mackenzie. In the video her family and herself informs the viewer on the symptoms and pain she had undergone.

We also were pleased to have her doctor do an interview, he explains how confident he was that Mackenzie was going to go back to living a normal life. In doing so, he promised that he would run a 5K with her at the end of all her treatments!

Mackenzie took this idea and run with it! Literally! With the positivity and support from family, friends, her doctors, and fellow Crohn’s and Colitis sufferers, she created Mackenzie’s 5k

With the help of social media, Mackenzie was surprised by how many supporters showed up for the 5K!

We were honored to be able interview Mackenzie and those that have helped her along her journey.
