Captain Roger Curry, U.S. Navy, and his family are grateful for all that the Ronald McDonald House of Durham has done for their family.

Capt. Curry’s daughter, Megan, suffers from Gata-2 Deficiency, a rare genetic blood disorder. Last year, Megan spent 198 nights at the House, which her father described as a refuge for families.

Familial support strengthens the coping abilities among caregivers staying at a Ronald McDonald House, like Captain Curry, during their child’s hospitalization. It can be hard for people to put into words what the support of RMHC means to their families, but in this touching video Capt. Curry talks about what an invaluable resource the House has been for them.
