Love Notes from Our Families

Thank you for your help in providing a “home-away-from-home.” The Ronald McDonald House has provided a “home-away-from-home” for our family throughout LeeAnn’s life. When LeeAnn received her first lung transplant in 1996, our family stayed in the third-floor apartment at the West Pine House. LeeAnn’s younger sister was born during our stay and brought “home” to the Ronald McDonald House while LeeAnn recovered after transplant.

We have seen so much growth since that time, with the addition of the Park Ave. House, the apartments, and the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the hospital. The help you are able to provide to families in need is an incredible blessing.

At this time, LeeAnn is waiting for a lung transplant due to complications and we feel so very fortunate to be able to return to an apartment at the Roald McDonald House while we wait. The wait time can be very long and stressful, but the workers and volunteers here are always patient, kind and so helpful. The community atmosphere at the Ronald McDonald House provides an opportunity to relax in a peaceful, homey environment.

Thank you! For all you do to keep the Houses open to new and returning families that face the emotional and medical challenges of caring for an ill child.

Thank you for being part of The House that Love Built.
