What I love most about the RMH is reflected in one of my first visits to the House. Two sick children were playing together. One said "I'm sick." The other responded "I'm sick too." With that, they went back to playing. That's what RMH is all about. Making kids and families feel comfortable during an incredibly difficult time.
