12 days of Christmas
365 days of care

How you can make the House a
home this Christmas.

Share page

Ayla desperately needed life-saving treatment in a hospital over 4 hours from her hometown after being diagnosed with the ugly childhood cancer, Neuroblastoma.

Her family have called Ronald McDonald House their home for over 365 days. Here they had a place full of warmth and comfort, surrounded by the caring community at the House which provides an invaluable support system.

“It feels like family. Everyone is with us on the good days and the bad days, they cried with us and laughed with us. Some days of the week volunteers came to cook for us which was just amazing”
Beatrice, Ayla’s mum

Last year Ayla and her family were able to be together over Christmas, while still being near the care she needed.  They are likely to be spending Christmas together once again at Ronald McDonald House this year.

Your generous support today can make the House a home for families with sick kids when they need it most.

Please help keep our families together at Christmas and every day of the year.

What makes the House a Home? Home is where the heart is. It’s so much more than the four walls and roof over our head. Being forced to move your family far from home, work, school and your entire support network due to a child’s illness is extraordinarily tough.

Ronald McDonald House is a unique place where families can feel comfortable, loved and protected while they are away from home.

Only with your help, can we make the House their home.
