Those interested in participating in the program will experience the tangible impact of the helping our families directly.
We are forever grateful to RMHC® SCO for giving us and many other families hope, comfort and warmth at a time when it was needed most. The amount of compassion and care we received while staying at the House helped us stay strong for our son. We are so proud of our miracle boy and will always remember what he went through and how far he's come!
Our story starts in the 36th week of pregnancy with our first son, Carson. Through a routine ultrasound it was determined that he had developed congenital hydrocephalus, water on the brain.
My husband and I were so excited to find out we were expecting twins, however when I woke up on March 11, 2013 I knew something was very wrong.
In July 2010, our two-year old son Mateo was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) after some routine testing for a Cystic Fibrosis research study we agreed to participate in.
Our son Grayson was born August 1, 2014 at 26 weeks gestation. Grayson ended up having four surgeries on his bowel and fought many infections during his 271 day stay in the NICU.
Our daughter Kylie was a little girl who loved princesses, playing with her brother and the Wiggles. All that changed around Easter of 2012. Kylie had started complaining of back pain.
In December 2012, our normal family life was turned upside down when blood tests confirmed that our 12 year old son Tyrel was in the last stages of kidney failure.
Our journey began on the evening of Saturday, July 14, 2007. Evan, our two year old son, had two Grand Mal seizures in two hours and was put in an isolation ward in the Pediatric Critical Care Unit.
During my routine 20 week anatomy scan, it was discovered that our little boy had developed a Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. A rare condition, where the diaphragm doesn’t fully develop.
With a focus on the health and safety of children, families, volunteers and staff, RMHC®SCO is taking every precaution to minimize the spread of COVID-19 throughout our Chapter and our community.
