“I was 20 weeks pregnant when we learned our daughter would need emergency heart surgery…she weighed 4lbs at birth and had her first open heart surgery when she was just one month old. The Ronald McDonald House was so supportive, and we could stay close to her.” Jessica Baker, mother of Kenzie, describes what the RMH has done for her family and is grateful for the community support. She shared her powerful story with Kris & Chelsea In the Morning on 100.7 KIK-FM.
Please support this incredible cause! Something as simple (and delicious) as a Shamrock Shake can impact thousands of children’s lives.
