BENEFITING: NEW YORK ROTARY FOUNDATION
Ronald McDonald House - New York City
New York Rotary Club supports the Ronald McDonald House of New York, a safe and supportive environment for sick children and their families who have traveled far from home for medical care.
They provide family rooms, kitchens, computer and play rooms, social and emotional support, professionally supervised activities, and transportation services. They can accommodate 81 families, and with our proximity to 12 major cancer treatment centers, they are filled to capacity almost every night.
Meet Conner (pictured), one of Ronald McDonald House's recent clients. Although Conner's course of treatment has been harrowing, he has never once felt alone. After standard protocols in South Africa failed, Connor's mom, dad, and little brother travelled with him to New York for advanced pediatric oncological care. They lived together for 16 months at Ronald McDonald House of New York.
