Meet two families who needed a home away from home
We serve approximately 12,000 individuals each year with comfortable guest rooms, hot meals, laundry facilities and more. Hear from two of them as they share how Ronald McDonald House Akron kept them close during one of the most difficult times a family can face.
The Carmen Miller Family (1:42) featuring Jeffrey Hord, MD
When little Carmen was diagnosed with a brain tumor, she needed to stay 10 minutes from the hospital for three months. Without Ronald McDonald House Akron, her parents would have slept in their car.
The Teddy Ram Family (2:07) featuring Bruce H. Cohen, MD
When Teddy developed mitochondrial disease, his parents searched nationwide for the specialized care he needed. Today, they drive from Long Island several times a year, thankful that our House provides a familiar home away from home.
