Staying near your child when he’s having open-heart surgery is a priceless gift. Ryan and Karen Steinke have stayed, along with their daughter Caroline, at three of our four Tampa Bay Ronald McDonald Houses. Little Braylon is doing great, considering he’s now had four heart surgeries in his five years of life.
Please give generously this holiday season so that we can continue to offer life’s most valuable gifts to the sick and injured children and their families who stay at RMHC each year.
Some families cannot afford the $10 per night suggested donation. Because no payment is ever required to stay, the House needs help covering even a small portion of the $100 per room night actual cost.
Keeping Families Close
Caring for a sick child while far away from home is difficult, expensive and unsettling. For 38 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities Tampa Bay has been helping children with challenging medical needs, and their families, stay close together during difficult times. Since 1980, our four Tampa Bay Ronald McDonald Houses have comforted and cared for more than 50,000 sick children and their families.
