TOLEDO, Ohio — The Ronald McDonald House Charities provides shelter for over 5,000 people a year with the help of up to 50 volunteers a week. The Wonderly family said their experiences with hospitals would not be the same without it.
Last month, Ted and Macey Wonderly moved their family more than an hour away from Sherwood, Ohio, into the Ronald McDonald House in Toledo after their 19-month-old daughter, Raegan, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.
“It’s basically formed in her bone marrow; she’s producing leukemia within her blood,” Macey said. “Her chromosomes 8 and 16 fused together and that’s what caused it and it’s so abundant that her immune system wasn’t able to kill it off.”
