About RMHC Western Australia
When a child is diagnosed with a serious illness, it usually has a devastating impact on families as well as the child. As well as the uncertainty of what will happen and the fear, there's added stress for families who don't live close to the medical hospital that their child needs. Ronald McDonald House Charities has a large range of programs which help families to stay together. This means that they will all have the support of their loved ones when they need it most.
