Children who are ill have a much better prognosis when they're surrounded by their families. For more than 40 years Ronald McDonald House Charities has made it possible for millions of families to remain close to their children when they're hospitalized. Not only has RMHC created a literal home away from home, contributing comfort and convenience to families facing such a hard time, the organization has lifted a tremendous financial burden from parents struggling to cope with the emotional and physical costs of medical care.
Did you know that when you donate a car to Ronald McDonald House the proceeds go to furthering their work, both locally and around the world? There are 357 Ronald McDonald houses in 63 countries today, which means that across the globe, when a young child is facing a cancer diagnosis or ongoing treatment for a life-threatening disease, family members can be right there, walking them through the tough times ahead.
When 3-month-old Sadie was rushed to the hospital after having a seizure, Noah and Melissa Korda were terrified. While in the emergency room, they were unable to revive Sadie, so she was intubated and rushed to Children's Hospital where she was well taken care of, but the Kordas had another problem: they lived in Van Nuys -- over 40 miles away. Hospital staff members suggested they talk to the Ronald McDonald Charity House Organization in Orange County.
“Melissa and I were so distraught and could not think clearly,” Noah said. “We both had just witnessed our only daughter almost die. We couldn’t even think about having to drive 42 miles one way just to go back home or to drive back to Orange County. As soon as we checked in the Ronald McDonald House, they were very warm and caring… They are there for everyone and I'm very grateful for the services they provided to my family and I during our time of need.”
You can play a part in the lives of grateful families like the Kordas by allowing the car you no longer need to benefit the organization’s effective programs.
