At this time of year we would like to share the fantastic work of Ronald McDonald House Charities SA. Young Madi’s story highlights all that is incredible and awe-inspiring about the charity.
Madi suffers from Neurofibromatosis, a serious condition which requires her Mildura family to rely on the ‘home away from home’ that RMHC SA offers. The family has been accommodated at the House over the past 13 years, having lost Madi’s older sister to cancer in 2010 and needing to stay in Adelaide for Madi’s multiple surgeries and treatments. Marie, Madi’s mum, describes RMHC SA as a ‘lifeline’, keeping them going through their ‘darkest times’, enabling Madi to continue her schooling and make lifelong friends. The House also ensures birthdays and Christmases aren’t forgotten, and makes a special effort to organise celebrations and volunteer visitors. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to have been part of the RMHC SA ‘support community’ over the past two years.
