Message for Ronald McDonal House Charities of Southwest Virginia
When a child becomes sick or injured, finding treatment is the most important thing to a parent. They gather all of their energy and resources together in order to have the best for their child. What they often don't think about until they arrive at the hospital is where they will stay and how they will take care of themselves. Many parents expect to stay by the child's bedside, only to realize that this will be uncomfortable, and in some cases, impossible if the child is being treated in intensive care. Some of the treatments can often last for weeks or even months. That is why supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities is so important. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Virginia (RMHC-SWVA) is an organization that gives families with sick kids the gift of togetherness and keeps them near the care and resources they need to thrive.
