The mission of Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House is to provide comfort, care and support to children and families in Southern California.

Families travel from around the world (volunteers who speak another language are very much welcome!) to bring their children to CHLA for its world renowned treatment of pediatric cancer and bone marrow transplants. The LARMH provides these families with inexpensive, and often free, lodging close to their child's place of treatment. The House also serves as a haven of hope where families can share experiences and offer comfort to each other.

    Sadly, my family are all sniffly or have sore throats. We don't feel especially unwell but in the light of what you said Molly, we had better let someone else take our place tomorrow. Sorry to miss it. We will be looking forward to the next family event where the children can play together.
