As a Pediatric emergency medicine doctor, I love seeing children heal, succeed and overcome. This ability to conquer and overcome is one of the main reasons I chose to take care of kids. As a parent of 5 children, I recognize that life can bring unexpected changes. After spending a week in the NICU with one of our children, I really came to see that families benefit from support that is genuine and heart felt. The desire to provide compassionate service to families of sick children has always been my desire and a partnership with Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest is a natural relationship. I love that so many people volunteer their time to provide support to families in need. In almost all cases, we can help children to heal physically, but it is organizations like RMHC that allow families to succeed through adversity. I hope that you will carefully consider the great opportunity that you have to make a difference as you also find a way to support RMHC of the Southwest.
