Why is this important? In the 11th week of my pregnancy, my husband and I were informed that our unborn twins had a condition known as Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome. One twin was sending her blood flow to the other twin, compromising the health and viability of both babies. After being monitored closely for several weeks, we were sent across the state to see a specialist in neonatology and receive a treatment consult. The Ronald McDonald House opened their doors and gave us a peaceful retreat from the stress of the hospital. I then moved to Florida to live with my parents for the remainder of the pregnancy. My husband was being stationed in Cuba for two years, and I wasn't able to accompany him until after the girls were born. After spending three months on bed rest and two weeks in the hospital, it was finally time for the girls to arrive. The doctor prepared us for possible complications, but the girls were fairly healthy. Sophia was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome and required surgery on the day she was born. She had bands wrapped around her left arm and toes that were acting as tourniquets, restricting blood flow to the rest of the appendages. After her surgery, the girls remained in the level 3 NICU for 10 days. My husband and I were able to stay next door at The Ronald McDonald House during that entire time. When the girls were ten months old, we returned to Orlando for Sophia to undergo reconstructive surgery on her arm to correct the damage caused by the amniotic bands. Once again, The Ronald McDonald House opened their doors for us so we could stay near the hospital. That entire year was incredibly difficult for our family. While facing the heartbreak of a challenging pregnancy and birth, we had to deal with a military move, a 6 month separation while my husband was in Cuba without us, and the difficult travel between Cuba and the States for surgery and appointments. The Ronald McDonald House gave us a place to stay, a place to find peace and comfort, a place to receive support from other families dealing with difficulties. We will be forever grateful for their investment in our family, and I am so very happy to raise money for this amazing group. We will never forget the kindness of the staff, the hospitality of the volunteers, and the shared prayers of the other families staying with us at each house. - Mary Pavlischek, Team RMHC 2015
