Week 2: May 20th - 26th, The Boxhorn Family

For Week 2 of Spring for Families, we highlight the healing journey of the RMHC Manitoba guests, Boxhorn family from Steinbach, Manitoba. Their son, Davey, was born with an intestinal obstruction and required immediate bowel reconstruction.

"When we got to the NICU, we didn't really know what was going on with Davey. It took about three days until they gave us a diagnosis. It was still very hard for us because we didn't know where we would stay after we left the Family Room. 

Then the opportunity opened up to stay at Ronald McDonald House and were so thankful. I actually cried on the phone when Kerry called me. It was such a good message and such good news for us so we could stay so close to our baby." - Christine Boxhorn
