Children Like Loni was established in 2015 to highlight the life of Loni Mackey and children like her.
Loni was diagnosed with Chromosome 1 and 7 Deletions at birth, which is a genetic disorder that limited most of her vital functions. Loni always wore a smile on her face, expressed love from her heart, and never became discouraged.
Loni was brave, strong, resilient, compassionate, and most importantly loving. Her favorite activities included dancing, eating, taking selfies, and arts and crafts. Loni, like others, was a major influence in the lives of everyone she met despite her disability.
Thus, this organization works graciously to offer assistance to children who are like Loni and their families.
