These are wonderful places and worth ever penny by way of a donation.Several years ago my wife and I needed these services as our 18 month old
daughter was in the hospital for open heart surgery. In Spokane, the Ronald
McDonald House is incorporated inside the hospital. I was able to get some
sleep for a few hours in a nice bed; while my wife stayed at her bedside, and
then we'd rotate. Our daughter was never alone for more than a few minutes
during that entire week -- thanks to the Ronald McDonald House.
My family stayed at a Ronald McDonald house in Austin when my brother underwent
brain surgery there. That place was amazing and Salt Lake is incredibly lucky
to have one here, too.
