I'll be Up All Night for sick kids
I’m taking part in Up All Night to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities Western Australia (RMHCWA).
Walking in an overnight marathon isn’t going to be easy, but it’s nothing compared to being the parent of a sick child.
And I should know. 30 years ago I was one of those sick kids. I spent months in and out of hospitals, including long durations of up to 6 weeks at a time. I spent holidays including Halloween and Thanksgiving in hospital while my friends enjoyed trick or treating or family dinners together. I missed weeks of school. The entire time my Mom and rest of the family sat by my side.
Every day, families from across WA come to Perth so that their child can receive emergency medical treatment. Ronald McDonald House is their Home Away From Home during the most difficult time of their lives.
I’m stepping up to show the families at Ronald McDonald House that they aren’t alone.
If you have never had a sick child, be grateful. Donate to my page today.
