It's a place to call home for families with seriously ill children.

No matter how often they need it, Ronald McDonald House is a place that families can rely on during some of their toughest days. 

“Without the support of Ronald McDonald House, we would've been stuck in a hospital,” said Emily’s dad Nathan. 

Families like Nathan and Susie, with a seriously ill child battling Leukaemia, have had to spend months, even years, far from home so they can be near the hospital and the vital treatment their daughter Emily needed.

They have endured long hospital visits, life-threatening complications, and the stress of being away from the rest of their family and their home.

But during it all Ronald McDonald House was a place that gave them everything they needed to get through an incredibly difficult time. It was;

A place the family could call home, right next to the hospital where Emily was receiving vital treatment.

  • A place for the family to be together, to laugh, cry and provide much-needed hugs.
  • A place to unwind and take a break from Emily’s hospital bedside in the Family Room, right outside the children’s ward in the hospital.
  • A place to help get Emily ready for her first year of primary school, after missing out on pre-school.
  • A place where sisters Kayla & Hailey could visit and play together with Emily.

Your gift today will provide a place to help make the darker days a little brighter for families like Nathan and Susie’s, providing care, comfort, safety, and security along the way.
