Donate to this Fundraiser

Walking into McMaster sick kids in Hamilton was one of the more helpless and chaotic feelings of my life. My little girl needed help and needed her parents by her side. I of course was unable to give her the medical help she needed but Ronald McDonald house gave me the ability to provide the support and comfort she needed. When we first showed up at sick kids we of course were overwhelmed with the unknown. What medical attention did our daughter need? How long would we be in the hospital for? How long would be living out of our suitcases for? Where would we shower? Where would we eat? How long would we sleep in hospital chairs and on floors for? Of course a lot of these questions would be answered over time and as our situation unfolded. However, Ronald McDonald House of Hamilton and their unbelievable staff were able to take a huge amount of stress and questions off of our plate. They provide their guests with a hotel standard room, breakfast and dinner, laundry services, internet, as well as all toiletries. All of this is at a very affordable price and takes a huge burden off the parents during a very difficult and unpredictable time. I can’t thank the Ronald McDonald House and their staff enough for the help they provided myself and my family. That’s where Jax Pays it forward stemmed from we believe if you cannot pay it back pay it forward and we want to show our daughter the importance of paying it forward and helping other families in need !
