I would like to ENCOURAGE you to allow the Ronald McDonald House to expand! I live in Iowa but my son receives his neurosurgical care at Lucille Packard for his brain cancer and has done so for the last 7 years. I have stayed a total of 11 weeks at the RMH at Stanford in the past but was unable to get a room for his most recent surgery in Nov. 2011. The RMH is a wonderful place for people like me who live a long ways away, have no family close by, and am already paying very high medical expenses (even WITH) insurance! Thank you for making this possible. I know there are plenty of grateful patients/families who would appreciate this expansion!
