The Mattice Family


Hayes, Kaylee & Dustin Mattice
Length of Stay: 
83 Nights
Hometown: Windham Centre, ON

The day my fiancé, Dustin, and I found out I was pregnant, we were over-the-moon excited - we couldn’t wait to grow our family!  That excitement quickly turned to worry at my 20-week ultrasound. I received a call from my family doctor to tell me there were some abnormal findings – Dustin and I were absolutely devastated to find out our little boy was very sick.

Amidst the specialist appointments, worry rapidly sunk-in …. How would we remain close to our baby once he was born and requiring Hospital care? That’s when we were introduced to RMHC.

When Hayes was born, we drove across the street from the hospital to begin our stay at RMHC SCO. As soon as we walked through the doors, I knew we would be okay; there was a sense of calmness that immediately took over.

The atmosphere at RMHC SCO is warm and stress-free – it truly does feel like your home away from home. If it wasn’t for RMHC SCO, I wouldn’t have been able to remain so close to my family as we navigated a crisis.
