A focus on long-term performance
Money magazine’s Best Retirement Innovator 20232
Mackenziee is like any other girl looking forward to her Year 12 formal with a beautiful dress and stunning pair of heels – except she’s been preparing to walk in them for 10 years.
Mackenziee has cerebral palsy and has had about 40 procedures over her lifetime to help her out of a wheelchair to move and walk. Standing unsupported in two-and-a-half-inch heels will be her greatest challenge to date.
Recently, she nominated her physiotherapist of 10 years, Tim McGowan, for Juiced TV’s Super Hero Awards, supported by QSuper.
Mackenziee’s mother, Raelene, credits him with her daughter’s recovery from every surgery, her physical progress, and her attitude to treatment.
Planning to stand side-by-side with Mackenziee at her formal, Tim, who works in Brisbane’s Queensland Children’s Hospital, will sport a pair of size 13 heels, custom-made for the occasion.
“There’s a big team that goes into supporting children like Mackenziee having surgery, so to be nominated as one of those people to provide the service is a privilege.”
Tim is the sixth person to be nominated for Juiced TV’s Super Hero Awards, an initiative launched by Juiced TV and QSuper to recognise the humble medical and support professionals quietly transforming young lives.
