Mom & Daughter

Please help us keep families close. Hospitalized children need their family’s hugs, smiles and kisses to brighten their days.

Claudia & Alex Brolo find themselves in the unusual position of raising their two children at RMHC Tampa Bay. 3-year-old Nina (now 4) is recuperating from pulmonary hypertension so that she can have lifesaving heart surgery. Her brother Italo, only 4 months when the family arrived, is now one-year-old and took his first steps at Ronald McDonald House. Your support this holiday season helps us care for families like the Brolos when they need it most.



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 52,000 sick children and their families.
