When you learn your child has a serious illness, it is an enormous shock. If the child requires sudden specialist medical treatment not available in their regional hospital, it adds yet another layer of trauma and significant logistics to consider.
Ronald McDonald House SEQ Herston provides accommodation for the families of seriously ill children who live more than 50km from the treating hospital in Brisbane. Ronald McDonald Houses help to preserve the family unit in the midst of physical, emotional and financial stress and also gives parents the chance to draw hope and comfort from other families in similar situations, while being supported by dedicated and friendly staff and volunteers.
Ronald McDonald House SEQ Herston is located next to the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital and the Royal Children’s Hospital.
