The 2019 Home Away From Home Appeal

Help us keep families close when they need it most.

Three-year-old Zosia has cerebral palsy. Earlier this year, she underwent spinal surgery at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The goal? That she would, one day, be able to walk on her own.

Zosia’s parents, Ola and Adam, along with her twin sister, Tosia, traveled from Poland seeking this life-changing operation. Although they were thousands of miles from home, thanks to the Ronald McDonald House, they were never alone.

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of St. Louis provides a home-away-from-home for families traveling to the St. Louis area, seeking medical treatment for their seriously ill children. The Ronald McDonald House exists so that families can access the quality health care their child needs while focusing on what is most important — facing the weight of an illness together, as a family.

But we can’t do it without your help. Donate today to help us reach our goal to $800,000, so we can continue to provide the comforts of home to seriously ill children, like Zosia, and their families.

No matter the size, your donation is important. As always, 100% of your gift stays in St. Louis.
