My name is Melita and I’ve stayed at ‘Ronnie Mac’ in Randwick now for over 470 nights.
For my family, we truly do call Ronald McDonald House home. We are so lucky to have RMHC Sydney as our home and not pay a cent.
When I was pregnant with my baby boy Same, I heard the incredibly difficult news that he required an immediate bone marrow transplant. Heartbreakingly, he was diagnosed with the same severe combine immune deficiency that my son Kini had dealt with just six years earlier.
We were scared, but we knew we had Ronald McDonald House to call on. We knew that if we needed, everyone is looked after. It's not just the child but the whole family.
Thank you so much, we can't do it without you.
