Triathlon for Ronald McDonald houses
Almost a year ago I was diagnosed with lung cancer. Now, after intensive surgery I'm fully recovered, all healthy again.
In this period of disease the importance of family - my wife and two boys - has once again become very clear to me. I can't imagine the horror if small kids have a disease and their parents wouldn't be able to stay with them in the hospital. That's why I try to raise money for Ronald McDonald houses by completing an Olympic distance triathlon in June.
Faced with a child’s illness life can stop overnight and parents enter a world of fear and worry. For parents who don’t live close to the medical care their child needs, there’s an added stress. Distance. Most families have to travel hours for treatment. Living expenses quickly add up. Long drives, lost jobs, worried siblings, sleeping in cars. Being far from family and friends. These are extra burdens no family should have to experience.
Thankfully, RMHC is able to help when it’s needed most. They keep families with sick children near to each other and the medical care and resources they need.
I am doing what I love, to fundraise for RMHC and the families they support. And I need your help! By making a donation today, we can give families the gift of laughter, love and time together. For a sick child, sometimes the best medicine of all is having family nearby for more hugs, kisses and I love you’s.
So, help me raise funds #forRMHC and keep families together by donating today!
