Why I Love RMH

Ronald McDonald House is there to provide the opportunity for families to stay together when kids are sick. What greater joy is there than to support that mission in any way possible! This is a way to make a positive impact in some of those most critical and challenging moments for families. Lastly, we have received this type of love and care when we were in need as a family, and in turn want to be there for others in our community!

Hospital Appointee

Chief Clinical and Transformation Officer, London Health Sciences Centre

Why I Love RMH

Having worked in the field of health care for many years, I know the value of the presence of family during a child’s illness.  I love Ronald McDonald House for being there for the families when they need it the most – when they are away from home looking after a hospitalized child.  Ronald McDonald house provides the support and home environment families need so they can focus on what matters - their child’s health.  I love being involved with Ronald McDonald House because the staff, team and volunteers make a difference in the lives of families in Southwest Ontario.

Michael Malleck

Michael Malleck

Owner, Clintar Groundskeeping Services

Why I Love RMH

In May of 2006 my wife Melissa and I were guests at Ronald McDonald House after our first son Max was born with several complications.  The House provided us a caring environment away from the hospital (but so close we were never far away) to re-charge our batteries so we could be with our son as much as possible. I am committed to this organization because I know firsthand the impact the House makes on people that are dealing with a situation that no family should have to deal with – a sick child. In honour and memory of Max I remain committed to RMH.

Dave Fulton

Why I Love RMH

Having the opportunity to meet families that have used or are currently using the House drives home how important this is for families with sick children.  To know that I am even a small part of such a caring organization makes me feel like I have helped in some way.  That is why I love RMH.
