On a day like Mother’s Day, when it’s time to celebrate family, togetherness and love, our five Ronald McDonald Houses and three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms become even more meaningful to families of hospitalized children. When a child is receiving medical care in the hospital, we offer families a welcoming and healing place where they can stay together in a private bedroom, with home-cooked meals every night and a strong supportive network of other families going through similar situations.  

That’s why on behalf of the moms, dads, grandparents and siblings staying at our Chicagoland locations, we have a very special request to ask of you:

Honor someone special this Mother’s Day by sponsoring a family at Ronald McDonald House during their greatest time of need. Each $85 donation will provide a night of care and comfort for a family at Ronald McDonald House.

A Mother’s Thanks 


Dear Friends at Ronald McDonald House Charities,


We wanted to thank you so much for the beautiful stay we had with you during the month of August last year. Our daughter Emily received radiation treatment at the Northwestern Proton Center. We did not know where we were going to stay, but you so graciously opened your facility up to us.


We don’t want to call it a facility now. It was our HOME, and such a warm one at that. To have such a place of comfort for our child was a true blessing. We had several visitors during our stay, and they all commented on the beauty and homeyness of the House. And now, Emily is in remission!!!


We are so excited, and want to thank all those who helped us on our journey! 

Wishing you a healthy and joyful 2016.
