“The Ronald McDonald House was a big blessing for me and my family in the 2 ½ months that our son, Teegan, was in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit,” says Teegan’s mom, Amy.
“After a difficult delivery, I was very grateful the Ronald McDonald House was available to help us in Teegan’s growing process as well as my own healing process. Born at 3 lbs. and 5 oz., Teegan had so many struggles in the beginning of his life. Having the Ronald McDonald House just down the stairs from our son, and knowing we could be there for him 24/7, gave my family peace of mind.”
“The Ronald McDonald House was such a peaceful, safe place that soon became very special in our hearts. We had the privilege of staying in a caring, loving environment where all the staff was willing to help in any way to make sure our stay was as homey as possible. Our favorite part of staying at Ronald McDonald House at Parkview was taking hot showers. After a long, stressful day, a hot shower with incredible water pressure was amazing!”
“Waking up to the smell of breakfast everyday made it feel that much more like home. Just having the scent of a home-cooked meal fill the whole house made our stay as relaxing as it could be while we waited for Teegan’s health to improve. The staff was always there to give us support for our family, especially in times when we were having a hard time understanding and dealing with the stress of what may be happening to our son. When things were not looking good, the staff was there offering a shoulder to cry on and a listening ear to talk to.”
“We will never forget our stay at Ronald McDonald House – it was such a happy and peaceful place to be. We could always count on staff to support us on the good and bad days. The Boszor family is so grateful for the services that Ronald McDonald House provides for the families like ours who need a home-away-from-home during difficult times like ours.”
Teegan is now 18 months old and doing great! He loves balls, giving high-fives, and walking with assistance. He is now a big brother and is staying here at the Ronald McDonald House at Parkview with his parents while his baby brother, Sawyer, grows stronger in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit at Parkview.
