01 Jul Finding A Reason To Smile
“Thank You From The Bottom of My Heart”
For Veronica and Julio, finding out their son Bryan had leukemia was hard.
Finding out that he couldn’t get treatment near their home was even harder.
They searched for months before they found a hospital that could help Bryan. Then, Veronica quit her job, packed their bags, and took Bryan far from home for the treatment she hoped would save his life.
You were there for them every step of the way. You gave them a place to stay at a Ronald McDonald House, where they had a private room, meals, and all the support they needed so they could fight illness far from home.
Veronica says the House felt like home to them. And, though Julio had to stay home to work, he visited his wife and son at the House often.
“It is a privilege to be here,” he says. “They give us back the smile we lost.”
Julio knows your gifts made their stay possible. He has a special message for you: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please don’t ever let the feeling of sharing be diminished. Your donations are not in vain. They are to save lives.”
Thank you for helping families like theirs.
