Guest Story

The Breemersch family (Counterclockwise from top left): Britteny, Kristen, Brian, Kendrick, Katrina and Brooke
“Two years ago, our daughter, Katrina, was diagnosed with a second inoperable brain tumour leaving her blind in her left eye and with low vision in her right, turning our lives upside down once again. It was decided she must undergo radiation treatment as she has already had chemo to treat her first tumour. 
Katrina enjoys baking and decorating cupcakes with her family during her Ronald McDonald House stays.
With no living arrangements and a requirement to stay for several months, our nurse contacted RMHC Manitoba to get us the care we so desperately needed. Staying at Ronald McDonald House® allows us to provide better care for Katrina and reduce the financial burden on our family. Ronald McDonald House has become a “home-away-from-home” for our family. We continue to stay there on our medical trips to Winnipeg from Brandon. 

The Breemersch family, including their many furry family members.

We are so thankful for the staff and volunteers of Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room® for all their support throughout this most difficult journey. We will never forget what RMHC Manitoba has given our family including treasured memories that provde hope. The people who give their time, effort and donations help make miracles like this possible.” - Kristen Breemersch
