    Mia’s treatments take her far from home

    Mia Sollars suffered a stroke in utero, and at six months old she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Cindi and Brad wanted to make sure Mia would get the absolute best care, so they chose Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, despite living 120 miles away.  At first, Cindi rented an apartment in...

    Home is Where the Love is

    On the morning of her third birthday, my daughter Amelia was diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukemia. She needed to be airlifted to Kansas City for immediate treatment. I was in shock and devastated that I couldn’t go on the flight with her because I was eight and a half months pregnant. Her father an... Read more about The Brown Family

    RMHC Gave Us Peace Of Mind

    To Graciela and Jose Acosta, RMHC is nothing short of a blessing.  The family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House near Advocate Hope Children’s Hospital for a month when their son, Santiago was a very sick infant.  As soon as they arrived, a burden was lifted. “When we came to the door something cha...

    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...

    Paris Sharper smiles next to his mother Luanda  

    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...

    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.

    Jordan Johnson smiles; he has a tracheotomy tube  

    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 about Carol and Kaeden

    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 ...
