THE ronald mcdonald FAMILY

The mission of the Ronald McDonald Foundation is to implement projects that help improve the health and well-being of children and their families when care is away from home. Family Centered Care, in fact, is a model of care practice that recognizes the centrality of the family in the life of the child with health problems, actively involving them throughout the entire treatment process. With a smile or a word of comfort or by making your skills available to our staff in organizing the various activities, you too can make a difference for the many families we host in our facilities!
