First Responder Hero Room – September 26, 2019
Wonderful Wally and his family, Chillicothe Officer Alex and Kelsey Bastian, got a sneak preview of the First Responder Hero Room at the Peoria Ronald McDonald House® today. Wally recently had a 100-day stay in Chicago where he underwent a heart transplant at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital. During their time in Chicago, the Bastians were residents at the Ronald McDonald House near Lurie’s and quickly came to view it as their “second home.”
“The Ronald McDonald House was our everything,” says Alex. “It was our place to go to unwind, get a few hours of rest when we could, and stay away from the hospital for a little bit (even though we wanted to be there the whole time). To stand here, knowing that other people are going to use this facility… it’s indescribable.”
Julie Locke of The Dax Foundation, the Chillicothe Police department and the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Illinois Board Members also attended as all have played a huge part in making this room happen. Help support the new Peoria RMH today.
