Joseph + Abigail McKinley stayed at RMHCCI in Peoria, IL, because they adopted their daughter, Rosemary, who remained a month-long at the NICU.
Nolan + Meg stayed at the RMHCCI in Peoria for five weeks in the fall of 2021. Their newborn daughter was born in Champaign but was quickly transferred to OSF Children's Hospital of Illinois NICU due to an unexpected airway blockage. They had always heard great things about the RMHC from friends and family members that had utilized them in the past but had never experienced one themselves.
The Dunham's 4-year-old son, Dawson, suffered a traumatic brain injury that required emergency surgery and a lengthy hospital stay. They were receiving care at HSHS St. John's Hospital, lived over an hour away from Springfield, and stayed at RMHCCI Springfield House to be close to Dawson.
JaLee and Derek had an unexpected stay at the Peoria Ronald McDonald House when their daughter, Collins, was born at 27 weeks two-day gestation. Collins ended up spending 111 days in the NICU at OSF Children's Hospital of Illinois due to her extreme prematurity and a heart condition. Jaylee was aware of the RMHCCI, but the nurses in the NICU were the ones who provided them with the information to request a room at the House.
Courtney stayed at the Springfield House twice in 2016 because she had her daughter at 32 weeks and once in 2021 when she had her son at 25 weeks. After having her first baby, Courtney learned about the House from our Hospital partner HSHS St. John's Hospital.
