Life’s most profound moments often emerge from the unexpected - those instances that shape our lives forever. Imagine the transition from realizing the gravity of a situation to embarking on a journey of treatment. In these very crucial moments, Ronald McDonald House is there for the families so they can focus on what’s important. Families like my own, facing Noor’s challenge with cancer, together.


While our family never stayed the night at RMH-NY, we deeply understand the challenges these families face. Since beating the fight with cancer, Noor and our entire family has been to the House multiple times to meet the families and loved ones there, and we’ve gained life-long friendships within RMH-NY’s 4-walls.


Today, I extend this invitation to you - to join an incredible mission to be there for families in their time of need. The fact that you’re here on this site underscores your commitment to making impactful change where it truly matters. Each donation you make contributes to supporting families, and even forwarding research at Sloan Kettering because families and loved ones can stay local where they are needed most for treatment and testing.


As you read this, remember that the power to spark hope and endure change rests within you. By standing with Ronald McDonald House New York, you’re helping reshape the futures of families facing profound challenges.We extend our heartfelt gratitude for joining us on this path of compassion, hope, and unity. Your decision to contribute is more than an action; it's a promise of connection and support for families that need it most.


With gratitude and hope,
