“Being offered a place at Ronald McDonald House Glasgow meant absolutely everything. This way we could be right there if he needed us through the night – the nurses or doctors could phone and we could be there in a second. Staying in the House with the other parents also gave us a sense of comfort. Being surrounded by people going through the same kind of emotions as you can really help during such an emotionally difficult time”.

“I am so grateful to everyone who helped us through that period of time, especially the Ronald McDonald House staff who really helped ease the stress in such a worrying time. We will be forever grateful.” Ex-Ronald McDonald House Family
