Walking to #keepfamiliesclose
Welcome to my personal Walk for Kids page! In 2014, I accepted a job with the Orange County Ronald McDonald House. I never knew what an impact it would have on my life. I have met incredible children battling terrible illnesses. Having a chronic blood condition (ITP) myself, I could (in my way) relate to the children and families I meet everyday. I remember the nights i've spent in the hospital, that fear and loneliness that hits you when visitation hours are over...I cannot imagine going through that with a child of my own...I know we are making a difference in the lives of these parents by allowing them to be close to their child in the hospital.
I hope that you will join me in raising money for seriously ill children and their families. Be sure to check back to view my progress, and please share this page so that I can reach my fundraising goal!
