I recently paid a visit to the Ronald Mcdonald Charity House this week and saw what a great facility it is for families with terminally ill children seeking treatment. Although the place does a really good job helping the families feel like they're at home with large apartment style rooms and a fully functional kitchen, they still need to spend what little money they have on medical treatment - i.e chemotherapy, groceries and milk.
But they can't get just any milk, the most nutrient dense milk is pediasure and ensure for the older kids, the toxicity of chemotherapy and other treatments can deplete all the nutrients and healthy antibodies for these children and drinking milk helps replenish their health and builds good protein for them to grow.
I was shocked to hear that it is incredibly expensive in comparison to my own imported protein powder which I thought was already pricey. A can of pediasure is roughly RM150 and can usually last about 2 weeks. The staff and nurses at the rmch give plenty of cans away because they know that most of the families who come in can barely afford them. So if there's anything I can do, it would be to help provide a consistent supply of milk powder for the families at RMCH. it's the least I could do, and now, the least you can do.
So let's give these kids and their families another reason to smile.
Any amount is greatly appreciated and let's see what we can do for them!
