Today we are sitting down with Rachael Casella, to chat about her daughter Mackenzie who passed away from spinal muscular atrophy at just seven months old. The determination and strength of parents to create a world changing legacy, in the midst of grief and despair, is one of the most amazing journeys you will ever here. We chat through loss, IVF, medical interruption of pregnancy, miscarriage, genetic carrier testing, SMA and a maternal assisted c-section.
