Over the past three years, 3,000 families were turned away from the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, MN because of capacity constraints. “Families travel great distances to our House and often have exhausted every medical resource available near their homes. They come to our community seeking hope, healing, compassion and comfort,” said Peggy Elliott, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Rochester, Minnesota. “We must answer the call to provide love and hope to seriously ill children and their families. We are so grateful to all of our donors and friends for their generous gifts of support to grow our mission,” said Elliott.
As Mayo Clinic Children’s Center grows in particular in the areas of proton beam therapy; regenerative medicine and individualized medicine the need for services at the Ronald McDonald House continue to rise. On average the Ronald McDonald House® serves over 900 families every year from across the country and around the world
