For 37 years the Ronald McDonald House has been committed to helping families of children who are in need of more than medicine and treatments. Providing a stable environment during hospital visits and treatments, gives children and their parents a loving approach to healing. Michela Benazzi learned the value of RMH personally, July 10, 2009. Her niece, Libby Claire not even two years of age, took a very bad fall while on vacation. If you would like to read the story, Caringbridge holds it all.
“Go to the journal and read oldest to newest. One thing I remember from that time is the call, saying Libby may not make it. Over time I am happy to say Libby has bloomed into quite a beautiful girl. During the battle, RMH opened their doors, hearts, and love to her parents and siblings. They were able to be with Libby through it all. I will never be able to tell you what a blessing that was. RMH will always remain precious to our family, and during the recent opening of the new Charlotte, NC RMH Libby was even asked to be a spokes model Shes appeared on billboards and a variety of advertisements.
It is by far an honor to give back to RMH in any method we can. If you have ever had the need for RMH, you too will know they are there when you need them. No questions asked. That is why I would like to take this opportunity to give back. No child should have to battle any illness or treatment alone. That hug, touch or smile from family is healing too!”
