Ronald McDonald House of greater Las Vegas helping families who need medical attention

What do you like best about the Ronald McDonald House near you?

The best medicine for a child is having mom and dad at their side. As the only facility of its kind in Las Vegas, the Ronald McDonald House makes this possible by enabling families to be within moments of their child's hospital bedside.

Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support.

Comments appreciated

May God bless you and your family,

Hello Sherrill,

I just saw your post today and want to encourage your association with Ronald McDonald House Charities. My friend Gail battled ovarian cancer long after they thought she could. She had volunteered herself for research I am sure is saving lives here in Alberta today. She would come to my house for creative therapy through stamping and often remarked how much she enjoyed it and wished her cancer-sister-warriors could also participate. We live in a rural area and my 6 kids were all still home at the time, so it wasn't until her passing a few years ago and all my childrens' graduations that I ventured to offer more to our closest Ronald McDonald House in Calgary. Sometimes we send large packages, and sometimes small, but every time My Sunny Porch Club contributes anything we are blessed and appreciated many times over! Friends who are fighting (or have loved ones fighting) any battle come to My Sunny Porch to enjoy the therapy of making cards. We share extras with several charities, but honestly none are as appreciative as RMHC. Maybe it is because there is nothing so overwhelming or that makes one feel so quite alone as when you are battling cancer (esp youth and children). Handmade heals hearts!
