The Moncrief family of Kenora has experienced the benefits of Ronald McDonald House in Winnipeg first-hand.
In early 2016, while in high school, Dustin Moncrief was diagnosed with an extremely rare type of brain cancer – a rosette-forming glioneural tumour – which has only 45 known cases worldwide. He was 16 at the time.
Fast forward to April 2019, after six months of radiation and 14 months of experimental treatments, doctors had seen the first shrinkage in Dustin’s tumours. The tumours remain, but now he only has to make monthly trips to CancerCare Manitoba for MRIs and regular check-ups.
While receiving treatment in Winnipeg, Dustin and his mother Lynda spent their time out of the hospital at their home away from home, Ronald McDonald House.
This summer, Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba is hosting Champion for Families 194. That number represents the longest stay for an RMHC Manitoba family in 2020. The goal is to pick your favourite activity and do it 194 times this summer, while raising pledges online.
Dustin's mom Lynda has decided to kayak and bicycle 194 kilometres this summer to raise money for RMHC.
Rise to the challenge. Sign up, collect pledges and do your favourite activity 194 times and Support Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba this summer.
