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.
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.
