Please help me raise $1000.00 for this awesome charity. You will also help me reach a goal I have only dreamed of. I have suffered from spinal degeneration and Spondylitis since I was a teen. I have three ruptured discs in my lower back and two in my neck. I never thought I would run a mile let alone a marathon!! But my awesome friends have inspired me to dig deep and find a way! And what better way to have a midlife crisis!! So join me on my journey to mile 26.2 and support a Charity that has saved precious moments for Mom,Dads, Sons and Daughters.
At every House, families can enjoy:
Playrooms for children
Depending on the House, these services may also be available:
Special suites for children with suppressed immune systems
Accredited education programs
Non-clinical support services
Sibling support services
The generosity of volunteers and donors make it all possible. In return, families either stay at no cost or are asked to make a donation up to $25 per day, depending on the House. The RMHC Global Policy is that families are never turned away; if its not possible to pay, the fee is waived.
Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support.
