Fa m ily P rof i l e :
Home: Thayer, MO (Oregon County) Due to the rare condition HELLP syndrome during my pregnancy, I was transported by ambulance to Springfield and delivered my baby, Hadley, by emergency C-section. Although she weighed only 3 lbs. 11 oz., she was perfectly healthy but still required an 11-day stay in the NICU. The Ronald McDonald House was a blessing while baby Hadley remained in the hospital and I recovered myself. They provided a warm meal every night and accommodated every need we had while staying there. Through our most difficult time, the Ronald McDonald House took some of our load off by giving us a wonderful place to stay. Thank you, Ronald McDonald House!
