Makenna Schwab

An exceptional young lady with a giving spirit.

Born with an incredibly rare skeletal disorder called Larsen syndrome, which causes bone dislocations throughout her body, Makenna has been through a lot in her short life, and has spent a lot of time at Seattle Children’s. Since birth, Makenna has been seen by specialists in the Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Department regularly. To date, her longest time away from the hospital has been six months. Through countless hospital stays and surgeries to help treat her complex condition, she says she strives to see the silver lining find new ways to help other kids like her. It’s through this determination and her giving spirit that she hopes to inspire others to make a difference.  

And as if that's not enough, she recently founded the Makspire Foundation,  a non-profit organization designed to help further her cause.
