When you can't be with your seriously ill child, any distance feels too far.watch
Ronald McDonald House?
When a child is seriously ill, the specialization and equipment required for their major medical treatment isn't always available locally. RMHBC is a charity that provides accommodation for these children and their families next door to BC Children’s Hospital. It’s a place of comfort, healing, and a home away from home for kids who must travel to Vancouver for the treatment they desperately need.
What Stops Families From Being Together?
When the unthinkable happens and a family is uprooted for their child’s critical medical treatment, there are many barriers they must overcome to stay together. Hotel stays are expensive, siblings need to be cared for, and staying in the hospital long term is unsustainable. That’s where the House comes in—providing accommodation, comfort, compassion, and a sense of community to these families in need.
But caring for so many families is expensive and isn't possible without the generosity of people just like you.
