Over 16 years, Makenzie underwent three surgeries and a number of long-term hospitalizations at CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital. During Makenzie’s treatments, her parents, Michael and Marci, found the support they needed in the form of the Ronald McDonald Family Room.
“I do not know how we would have managed without the hospitality and comfort of the Ronald McDonald Family Room and the constant support of the volunteers,” said Michael.
The Ohmer Family actively gives back to the Ronald McDonald Family Room at CHOC Children’s at Mission Hospital by serving as regular volunteers there. In this way, they are able to provide comfort to other families going through similar challenges that they have successfully navigated.
