I cannot say enough about the Austin TX RMHC. The people involved from the volunteers to the the top are the most amazing caring individuals you would ever want to meet. They are doing Gods work. My husband was ill a few years back and I know how hard it was taking him back and forth to the hospital, making a grown man go in for his Chemo treatments, etc. I cannot imagine what that must be like to go through with a child, much less have to be in another city away from home. The amazing simple things the Austin Ronald McDonald House provides to families in these situations are priceless. Having a sick child is an awful thought, and already comes with a high financial burden, but imagine having to pay for weeks of hotel rooms, food, and being away from friends and family.
If you have the opportunity please look into this amazing charity. Give if you can of your time or your donations. Take a tour. You will be surprised at what they provide, who they provide it to, and how easily you can make a difference.
