Description

At just 9 weeks old we transferred Charlie from the Winthrop University Hospital NICU in Mineola down to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. We were going blind: not knowing for how long, where we would stay or what the outcome would be. We only knew this was where Charlie needed to be and the rest would fall into place. It was scary and worrisome, not only for our son Charlie's fate, but also for our then 2 year old daughter, Abery. How could we create any sense of normalcy for her in this extremely difficult situation? That's where the Ronald McDonald Organization (RMD) changed our lives. Without them our entire experience would be different. At the RMD house there were other children for Abery to play with, home cooked meals so I didn't have to worry after spending long hours by Charlie's bedside, friendly faces to help soften a difficult day at the hospital, shoulders to cry on, stories to share and people to relate with. Upon entering the front doors each day, there was a feeling of home, a feeling of peace.

We are forever indebted to what this organization has done for our family, which is why we want to give back, to help another family in the same manner. While Charlie truly is a champion for his accomplishments that he continues to make each day, so is Abery for being by his side and helping him succeed each day, so is my husband Paulie for his back and forth trips between NY and Philly each week, so am I for keeping it all together from the time Charlie was born to our 5 month sojourn during which our family was apart. The Ronald McDonald House offered us the ability to be the Everyday Champions that Charlie needed in order to "get better and better every day in every way".

Can't wait to celebrate giving back at this awesome event!
