Ronald McDonald House - Stanfordhttp://www.ronaldhouse.net/
Ronald McDonald House (RMH) at Stanford provides a "home-away-from-home" and support for the families and children with life-threatening illnesses receiving treatment at Lucile Salter Packard Children's Hospital or Stanford Medical Center. As medical treatments evolve, more and more of the ill children stay at the House as outpatients while receiving treatment. RMH provides a haven these families can call home, permitting them to give their ill child their complete attention and support. The House at Stanford was built in 1979, the fifth RMH in the country. There are more than 240 RMH's in 25 countries.
