their child’s life-threatening illness. Proceeds from this event will be
used to keep families at our two Atlanta Houses close so their sick
child won’t have to face their illness without their mom or dad by their
side,” said Goizueta.
The Ronald McDonald House helps keep families close to their children
receiving medical treatment, allowing the caregivers to spend more time
with their child and interact with their clinical care team. The two
Atlanta Houses have provided a home away from home to more than 45,000
families of ill and injured children since the first Atlanta House
opened in 1979.
