Housing
Ronald McDonald House Charities

Since 1974 the Ronald McDonald House Charities has been helping families cope with the pressure that can come when caring for a sick child. For many, that means staying in a Ronald McDonald House so they can be close to their child while receiving treatment. Others can benefit from the Family Rooms that Ronald McDonald House Charities has in many children’s hospitals. http://www.rmhc.org

Travel

Many families find it necessary to have medical care at a hospital outside their community. There are organizations that will help provide air travel for the patient and one caregiver.
