Family is Medicine Mission Campaign

Family is Medicine Mission Campaign

Right now it’s hard for all families to stay close - but it’s even harder for families of seriously ill children, especially those who must travel far from home for medical treatment. As Canada’s family care charity, we understand the importance of keeping families close, especially during these difficult times. Being with their family can make all the difference for a sick child. That's why RMHC Southwestern Ontario has helped tens of thousands of families stay together, close to their seriously ill or injured child in hospital.

When families stay together, sick children get stronger. #FamilyIsMedicine​​


For 40 years in Canada, it has been humbling to know that more than 425,000 families have received the comfort and support of RMHC when the unimaginable happens. This next wave of growth will help ensure that we can be there for even more families in need of our support, as we continue to live into our mission of keeping families close®

For Sue Dohan, staying at RMHC Southwestern Ontario allowed her to be with her son Luke - to play with him, to cuddle and to celebrate special family occasions like birthdays and holidays. You can WATCH THEIR JOURNEY, and see how RMHC-SWO made this Thunder Bay family feel at home when they were a flight away. 

We are reaching out to our valued supporters today, to help spread the message about the importance of family in a child’s treatment journey - when families stay together, sick children get stronger. The need for our essential service, and enabling access to children’s hospitals across the country, has never been more critical.
