Ronald McDonald House

Filed in Other on April 7, 2017

I find no cause more honorable than one which supports life.  I was 23 years old when my first daughter was born.  She was born with meconium aspiration– a life threatening condition. Thankfully, she fully recovered. I was very fortunate to have a Ronald McDonald House to stay at during this time.  The house was nearby the hospital and I was not asked to pay anything. I support the Ronald McDonald House, in loving gratitude, by offering a helping hand.

The Ronald McDonald House can be found in more than 63 countries around the world.  Each home is locally owned and operated and offers families a place that feels like home. The families of children, from birth through 21 years of age (or 18, depending on the House), who are being treated at nearby hospitals and medical facilities, are eligible.

Families either stay at no cost or are asked to make a donation up to $25 per day, depending on the house. However, payment is NEVER expected for those who cannot afford it. The difference is made up through donations.

Keeping families close to each other and the care they need.
