Illuminate the House

I'm raising $25,000 for families at the London Ronald McDonald House.

Come Support me!

Traveling far from home is a reality for 70% of families with seriously ill children. Last winter season, 410 families called Ronald McDonald House (RMH) London their “home-away-from-home”.

Children Brighten Our World, so we are Inviting You to Illuminate Theirs

You can bring warmth, light & love to RMH families this winter season when you make a gift to Illuminate the House. We have a goal of raising $25,000! Your gift will help to provide the “behind the scenes” necessities that keep our House cozy for things like…
• A good night sleep in a cozy private bedroom- regenerating parents from many long days in hospital and sleepless nights
• A hot and refreshing shower to re-energize a tired parent
• Access to laundry to help refresh a favourite “blankie” or stuffy

Kyleigh’s Family had RMH London to illuminate strength on their most difficult days…
“When I look back over the past year it feels like a dream. As if all the health issues Kyleigh had, and overcome were just terrible dreams. I then change her clothes or her shirt dips a little low. I see the scars from the I.V. pokes, the scars from her drainage, or the chest scar from her open heart surgery. When I see these, I see a fighter, I see a survivor, I see a life, and I see a warrior. When I see her smile and laugh, I hear her cry, squeal, talk and babble, I see the love of our family, friends, surgeons, doctors, and nurses. When she blows a kiss or gives a snuggle or hug, I feel the love of a community. Over the past year she has taught me what is important, what is worth fighting for and not to worry over the small things. The most important thing that Kyleigh has taught me is that scars are beautiful. Kyleigh is an active, sassy, happy, full of life 17 month old. She does nothing slowly and continues to surprise us daily. She is a gift we will be forever grateful for.”
