Imagine learning that your child is ill and you will need to travel to a different city to receive the medical care they need. In the midst of your worst nightmare as a parent, you must now also leave your home, your job and your support system. This is the reality for more than 70 per cent of Canadian families with seriously ill or injured children.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Southern & Central Alberta is here to help. Our Houses provide a home away from home for families with children receiving vital medical treatment in Calgary and Red Deer. Most importantly, our warm, welcoming and affordable accommodations help ease the heavy financial and emotional burdens placed on the hundreds of families who come through our doors each year.
