10 Finding Comfort With Her Mom

In an instant, 10-year-old Itzel Arely Aguilar's life changed when she was severely burned with hot water in 2012. For more than a year, Iztel has been treated for her burns at San Juan Nicolas Burns Hospital. The painful treatments and tests have been grueling for Itzel. The treatments also mean that she was away from her school and her family. Thankfully, Itzel and her mom have been able to find comfort in a very special place — the Ronald McDonald Family Room in Toluca, Mexico.

Steps away from where she is getting treated, the Ronald McDonald Family Room offered a place for Itzel's family to rest and regroup right at the hospital so they could in turn offer better support to Itzel during her treatment.

It was where all the chaos and turmoil that we were facing was mitigated by the care, concern and love felt everywhere in that House."
