when a child gets sick they have to go to a hospital far from their
families. And parents want to be with their child every second during
such a difficult time. In fact, many would trade places with them if
they could. For more than 30 years,
the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maine has been helping children
with challenging medical needs, and their families, stay close
together during difficult times by providing a “home-away-from-home”.
Since 1983, our Maine Ronald McDonald Houses have comforted and cared
for over 12,000 sick children and their families.
This year, I am participating in
the RMHC of Maine Bangor/Brewer Bowl-A-Thon.
I ask you, my friends,
family, and co-workers to please join me in raising funds to keep
families and children close.
