His mom Lela talks about the vital support she and her family received from Hawaii’s Ronald McDonald House during a very challenging time. Transcript: [gentle guitar music] The Ronald McDonald House is a home-away-from-home providing a network of safety and support for families in need. But this extension of family, is really made possible only because of the generosity of a community that really cares. Lela, Parker, and Hunter Gentry Mom, Lela speaking about her son Hunter: When he was in the hospital as an infant and there’s tubes all over. He’s in this machine. You don’t know what to really do. Your’re scared and I just wanted to get my child better and I didn’t want to worry about anything else. I didn’t want to worry about where am I going to stay. The Ronald McDonald House gave me that place to stay, and helped me and gave me a home-away-from-home. (sounds of running water) He likes to paddle. He’s always in the water and when you look at him today, you’d never know anything was wrong. [gentle guitar music] The Ronald McDonald House – keeping families together when they need each other the most.
