I am privileged to work for Ronald McDonald House Charities and I am amazed every day by our families and House teams for their courage and commitment. I was truly overwhelmed when we relocated our Camberwell House back in 2012 and I witnessed the first few families arriving at their new 'home from home'. Seeing the impact the comfort and support of a Ronald McDonald House has on a family is humbling and something that never ceases to amaze me.
