You can help give sick children what they need most Their Families
Today, 2 out of 3 Canadians live in a city without a specialized children's hospital. With your help, RMHC Southwestern Ontario provides families with a "home-away-from-home" close to the medical care their children need.
We offer a home away from home for families whose children are receiving medical care at London and Windsor hospitals.
A little can change a lot. Your donation can have a lasting impact on a child’s life.
Whether you’re looking for a group volunteer opportunity or an individual one, we offer lots of ways for you to get involved.
RMHC-SWO provides comforting and supportive programs that keep families close. See what you can expect on your stay.
When you volunteer to make a meal you will experience the tangible impact of helping our families directly.
If you are looking for a fun way to help families with seriously ill children why not host your own fundraiser?
Many guest families from across Southwestern Ontario have kindly shared their personal journeys and RMH experiences with us. These stories show their appreciation for the comforts the House provided to them when they needed it most.
When I checked in I was full of anxiety, uncertainty, and fear. I was given a nice gift bag with some necessities to take all the simple stresses off of my plate so I could focus on my family. While at the House I would see other families getting coffee, eating lunch, watching TV, etc. and I kept thinking to myself “What's their story?”... “Why are they here?”... “How long have they been here?”...
Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia is a rare form of cancer and the average age of people who get it is 40 – I was only 16…
On December 29, 2020, we had a scheduled c-section. Oakley was not expected to survive because his diagnosis was considered incompatible with life. He had a large omphalocele, scoliosis, a missing leg, a club foot, and only a 2% chance of survival. After he was born, he was brought to the NICU and we were transferred to Ronald McDonald House in London, right beside the hospital. He kept thriving, doing better and better, continuing to show everyone how strong-willed he was.
“Minutes and even seconds mattered, for mine and my baby’s life…”
On March 2, 2022, at only 26 weeks pregnant, my husband Dane and I experienced the scariest moment of our lives when I started to bleed due to placenta previa – a dangerous pregnancy complication.
