The Dovin Family
The Dovin's daughter Lucy was diagnosed with CDH (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia) when her mother, Tiffany, was pregnant. They learned about Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Illinois from OSF Saint Francis: Maternal/Fetal Diagnostic Center. The Dovens knew they had a long road ahead of them and needed to be in Peoria, IL, close to OSF Children's Hospital of Illinois. Family is medicine, and Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois provided the means for Lilli (big sister) to stay with mom and Dad and be close to her little sister while receiving critical medical care. Tiffany said, "With her being able to stay with us at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Illinois and to visit the hospital, it helped Lilli a lot! Lilli could be close to her sister and her parents, so there wasn't so much change for Lilli all at once."
