EVENT DATE: Jun 05, 2016
My great niece has Cancer. It happened when she was four. The link below is her story written by her father. She has come through this with the help of many organizations. Ronald McDonald House helped them be close at hand and provided comforts while waiting.
Our team is raising money for Ronald McDonald House of Central & Nothern New Jersey. Please help me make a difference for this worthy cause. I have posted a picture time line of her as she overcame cancer. Please use the arrow keys to scroll through these pictures.
My niece wrote the below paragraph about her experience with Ronald McDonald House.
“Ronald McDonald House is a wonderful organization that also supports the families of children with any medical condition at the Hershey Children’s Hospital. The have a house located close to the hospital for families to stay at when they are far from home. Being local, we didn’t need to utilize the facility itself, but were able to utilize other supports that Ronald McDonald House offers. When Katelyn was there, it was still the old hospital, so there may be even more things they offer in the new hospital. In the old hospital, they had a room for us that had snacks and drinks, a microwave, refrigerator, computers with internet access, a television, and tables and chairs. I remember using the computer, and being grateful for the snacks and drinks especially late at night when everything was closed. If I remember correctly, they had a room that had pull-out beds that parents could sign -up to use each night if they were unable to sleep in the child’s room. They also had a supply of toiletries for us to use if needed.”
