When my son was born in 1981 he was always sick. I was a very young mother constantly going back and forth to the hospital because my son would have reactions to things and couldn't breathe. We almost lost Shane 3 different times. Ronald McDonald House extended help by offering me a place to stay on campus.
Even though I lived within a 5 mile radius they felt they should try to help with something to relieve the stress. I never stayed there because there were families from out of state that could use that room more than I, but I did have a huge bill from the hospital that I couldn't afford to pay. Ronald McDonald House paid the bill in full and for that I will be forever grateful.
My son is now 38 years old but I always give when I am in a McDonald's and they take money in the boxes there on the counter. I was thrilled when I saw I could give to them thru my pay check to SECC.
