When you gift this moment, you're giving 3-year-old Rowan more time to read bedtime stories with Mom.

This small donation means a child like Rowan can stay close to his family at Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon—a temporary home for families who must travel to Vancouver for their seriously ill child’s medical treatment. For Rowan, the best part of staying at the House was settling in for the night to a bedtime story with Mom.

The Loran Family
At just 18 months old, Rowan was diagnosed with Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, a rare genetic bleeding disorder. For Rowan, a small bump could turn into a huge bruise or internal bleeding, and any sickness at all meant time in the hospital. In desperate need of a bone marrow transplant, Rowan and his family needed to stay for four months in Vancouver. Luckily, they found a home together at Ronald McDonald House, so Rowan could receive treatment at BC Children's Hospital.
