EVENT: Agents of Change 2016
Our agency is raising funds for a local family to have a place to stay as their child is receiving treatment for a serious illness. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City offers care and supportive services to families of sick children that have to travel to and from the hospital for treatment.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City has provided over 7,000 families with a place to stay as they receive services at Children’s Mercy Hospital. The House has a private bedroom for a family size of up to 6 people, private bath, internet access, kitchen and laundry and other services to ensure comfort and security. The House has helped families like 1-year-old Berkley whose kidney was failing and needed a kidney transplant. With the help of RMH Kansas City, Berkley’s mother Kassi was able to donate her kidney to her daughter, recover and stay at the House while her daughter also recovered at Mercy Hospital. “The support of family is important to the recovery process and our agency wants to make sure that families can stick together during this hard time”.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City is a home to families from all around the world. Parents and children meet other families that are going through some of the same situations they are going through and are able to gain love and support from each other. Join us in creating a home away from home for families with sick children.
