The Ronald McDonald house is our safe place. When our family first started Liam’s health journey two years ago we were scared and had no idea what this path was going to look like. Part of any journey like ours is the fear of the unknown and for us having the RMH to go to has made all the difference. Everyone at the house is going through something big in their lives. And with that comes a certain understanding that you don’t get anywhere else.
Well out in the real world we try our best to put aside our worries and troubles and live life normally. But when in the Ronald McDonald house we don’t have to. We don’t need to pretend that we aren’t going through the trenches of medical problems. Everyone in the house is going through it too. There are no expectations, no one looks at you funny if your walking around with tears in your eyes. I can come back to the house after a Dr. Appointment with Liam and not have to put a fake smile on my face. If Liam is crying and screaming parents and kids alike help out.
We have made friends for life at the house. Friends that we can go to and ask questions and bounce things off or ask about something your child’s Doctor may have said. If it were not for the house, we would not have those connections and our journey thus far would be a lot harder.
The Staff, volunteers, and the groups that come in and make family meals for us are amazing. When Liam and I go into the house for the first time in weeks he is always excited to be back and remembers everyone and every room and toy that he loves so much. Because Liam has been going to the house sense 10 months old it really is like his second home.
We LOVE the Ronald McDonald House
By sponsoring Liam, you help to provide accommodation and support for sick kids and their families when they must travel to Vancouver for life-saving treatment. The new Ronald McDonald House BC and Yukon, opened in 2014, can serve 73 families each night, so they need our support more than ever!
Thank you so much for considering donating to this amazing house in our name!
lots of love,
Kate, Cody, Paige and Liam
