This Christmas, YOU can Be a Santa for Sick Kids

For most kids, Christmas is a time for toys and fun.

For the seriously ill and injured children staying at Ronald McDonald House, they just want their families close as they battle childhood diseases, illnesses and injuries. 

On average, it costs Ronald McDonald House Charities $160 to support a family for one night.

We need to raise 1,500 nights to provide a home away from home for kids undergoing life-saving treatment this Christmas.

By donating now, you can give a seriously ill or injured child the best gift of all - their family.

So, will YOU Be a Santa for Sick Kids this Christmas?

Meet some of our brave and courageous kids who need a Santa this Christmas.

Mackenzie

When little Mackenzie was unwell for a couple of months, her Mum knew something wasn’t right.

Mackenzie was then diagnosed with Leukaemia at age 2 and has spent 156 nights in Ronald McDonald House while undergoing intensive treatment.

Jackson

At only 5 years old, Jackson was taken to the hospital for what was thought to be a chest infection. Sadly, the worst was revealed…

Doctors found a tumour that had taken over half of Jackson's chest cavity and spread to his kidneys. He was then diagnosed with Leukaemia.

Thea

Thea was diagnosed at 11 months with DCM (enlarged heart) caused by a condition called Myocarditis. Thea required immediate treatment and needed to move 1,663 km away from home.

Earlier this year, Thea and her Mum were isolated in the hospital during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic for 3 months.

Mia

Mia was just 5 years old when she was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma - an aggressive brain cancer that would confine her to a wheelchair for over a year.

Mia and her Mum had to travel nearly 4 hours to hospital for treatment before they found a home-away-from-home at Ronald McDonald House.
