“The Ronald McDonald House was amazing to my family it gave us somewhere to stay the entire time so we could be close to our daughter and not have to worry about anything as we live 2 hours away. We met amazing people along with staff. We will forever be grateful for the Ronald McDonald House,” stated Stacie.
Kaitlyn is now 16 years old, honor student, and athlete in both Basketball and Volleyball.
