    Your small change makes a difference

    Spare change dropped in RMHC Donation Boxes at McDonald’s restaurants can make a huge difference to families with sick kids.  Recently, because donations gave two Texas children and their family access to the medical care they needed, they were also able to share an experience of a lifetime together...

    When “it happens to you,” RMHC is there to help

    Like many young students in Orland Park, Ill., Laurie Cepkauskas collected pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in town. And like her peers, she didn’t do it because she knew exactly what the charity was doing, but because that’s just what students did.  “I really didn’t know anything about it exc... Read more

    RMHC has been there for us through the years

    My family’s first experience with the Ronald McDonald House of Durham and Wake was when my son Paris was three years old. After months of trying to figure out why Paris was so ill, we learned that he had restrictive cardio myopathy. The doctors sent us to see heart specialists at Duke Children's... Read more

    Three generations celebrate Mother’s Day at the Ronald McDonald House

    Sherri Mylander’s mom, Sandy Bernier, travels from Escanaba, Mich., to Greer, S.C., each year to visit Sherri and her family. But it has been 30 years since the mother and daughter celebrated Mother’s Day together. That will change on Sunday, when they and Mylander’s 16-year-old daughter, Gabrielle ... Read more
     

    It's hard to put into words what RMHC has meant to us

    When Noelle Johnson is asked about her son Jordan’s health, she can rattle off the dates of his three heart surgeries, his seven-month stay in the hospital as a newborn, when he got a tracheotomy tube inserted to help him breathe and the nights she’s spent by her 12-year-old’s side every time he’s c...

    RMHC Welcomed Us into a Big, Loving Family

    At just three days old, my son Kaeden needed brain surgery. While he spent the next three weeks in the hospital, I was at his bedside as much as possible. I was struggling to understand all of the medical challenges facing Kaeden and the difficult road ahead of us. I felt completely overwhelmed. Tha... Read more

    RMHC Helped Us Cope Before, During, and After Bradley’s Transplant

    On February 17, 2015, my four-year-old son Bradley received a life-saving stem cell transplant from his twin sister Charlotte (Charlie). So far, it seems that Charlie’s donated stem cells have taken over in the line where Bradley’s cancer was. We are very optimistic that this treatment will prevent ... Read more
    RMHC Family - Raylee & Gene White  

    There’s Nothing Like the Ronald McDonald House

    My wife Cynthia and I met our great-granddaughter Raylee when she was six-months-old and suffering from infantile spasms. She was having up to 60 seizures a day and would sometimes stop breathing. We were so lucky to find an amazing child neurologist to treat Raylee at Children's of Alabama in B... Read more

    Running with Rose for RMHC

    Five generations of my family took a walk led by my mother, Rose, who celebrated her 100th birthday in September. This wasn’t just any walk; it was the Running for Hope 5K Run/Fun Walk to raise money to support RMHC of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana. Surrounded by one of her daughters, two ... Read more
