Currently, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Phoenix (RMHC) helps more than 2,000 families facing medical crises with their children. With a third House on the campus of Cardon Children’s Medical Center, RMHC Phoenix will be able to provide 5,840 additional nights to families who need a place to stay.
The 17 mile distance between Cardon Children’s Medical Center and the nearest Ronald McDonald House might not seem far, but for a family with a child in the hospital, the distance is frequently too much. The time spent during the 17 mile drive is time that could be spent together as a family. Many families with children receiving treatment in East Valley decline to stay at the Ronald McDonald House in order to stay close to their children. Our new House will allow families to stay at a “home-away-from-home” in the East Valley without sacrificing time away from their sick children.
Your contribution to our campaign will help us open new doors, and help ensure all families continue to find a "home-away-from-home" at Ronald McDonald House of Phoenix when they face the challenge of caring for an ill or injured child.
With the addition of Ronald McDonald House on the campus of Cardon Children's Medical Center, RMHC Phoenix will be able to house 79 familes nightly in the Phoenix area! That's 28,835 nights each year!
