Amaya's Bone Marrow Transplant

51995574_1603133230226727_r.jpegOn October 5, 2020 my daughter, Amaya,  was admitted to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to receive a bone marrow transplant. 

The thought alone was daunting, and we knew there were going to be so many challenges to face. Thanks to the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House my daughter and I didn't have to stress over where we were going to stay throughout the process. Having a stable housing situation during this crucial time allowed me the freedom to focus on my daughter and her health through transplant.  

The Ronald McDonald House Charities helps so many critically ill children and their families. They aren't just a house, they create a community of support and offer hope to families during these dark days. 

Amaya and I are asking for your support, not just for ourselves, but for all the families with sick children who would otherwise go without care. Your help means The Ronald McDonald House can continue to offer services to families in need.
