DETROIT – Making kids feel beautiful during their biggest struggles.

That's the legacy McKenna Schumer leaves behind with a beauty bar.

11-year-old McKenna from Grand Blanc bravely fought bone cancer for two years.

During that time, she developed a love for make up and shared her passion with others at Children's Hospital in Detroit.

McKenna's mom says opening the beauty bar was her vision.

"I know this is what she wanted and in her little 11 years how much she has impacted so many people,” said Schumer.

The ribbon cutting for McKenna's beauty bar is Saturday at Children's Hospital.

They also plan to open one at Hurley Medical Center.
