Ella started going to Nationwide Children's Hospital in 2013. We are so blessed to have the world's largest Ronald McDonald House accessible to our family and to Ella. The RMH brings comfort to Ella and she creates friendships with other children who suffer with similar disorders as her. Ella doesn't feel like she is at a hospital while she is there. She feels at home. She loves the princess room, library, spa, movie room and of course .... the tree house. We live in Buffalo, NY which is about 5 hours away, so staying at the RMH takes all of our worries away while traveling. The ease of being able to do laundry, having access to food and normalcy is amazing. We are so grateful for the smiling faces that greet us when we walk in or serve us food. Ella's younger brother, Joshua, has also been a guest when he needed testing and loved it there. Both brothers have also been guests while Ella was admitted for a major surgery as well. Ella and I often travel alone, so we are very thankful for the RMH and the comforts they provide us while there.
Any support is greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for supporting the Ronald McDonald House Charities!!!
The Skate It Forward initiative provides a direct avenue for athletes, members, and supporters to enhance the lives of those in our community. Through our love of figure skating and helping others, we strive to ease the immense burdens of families who rely on the generosity of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
On Saturday, June 16th, Skate It Forward will host it's annual ice show featuring championship level skaters along side the talents of local figure skaters. Hosted by The Skating Club of Central Ohio in partnership with OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks, Skate It Forward combines the love of our sport with a desire to help families through Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio. Help me make an even larger impact on families with hospitalized children with a gift to RMHC of Central Ohio. $100 provides for one night of rest at the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House right here in Columbus. Any gift will make a tremendous impact on children and families as they some of their most difficult days.
