"My nine-year old baby boy, Hanif, was born with Sickle Cell anemia, a debilitating genetic blood disease that causes periodic pain crisis worse than labor, and slowly causes damage to vital organs. Last year, the disease nearly took little Hanif's life as he spent 2 scary months in the ICU of Maria Fareri Children Hospital, out of which, 45 days were spent in an induced coma. Words cannot describe what my family went through during those long, scare-filled months. After months of preparation and conditioning with strong chemotherapy and radiation therapy, Hanif finally had a bone marrow transplant and I was the donor. "No more pain, Mommy!!!" he exclaimed a few days ago, with a huge sigh of relief and a big smile on his cute little face.
So, this Thanksgiving, my family and I have a very special reason to be grateful - Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley and its selfless and dedicated staff. During both admissions at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, this incredible organization provided us with accommodation and peace of mind that a family in our circumstance desperately needs. RMH-GHV gave us a feeling of a home-away-from-home; it allowed us to be a family and for little Hanif to benefit from the support and psychological boost offered by our frequent presence at his bedside. "It feels so good to have my whole family around all the time, specially my big brothers, Jamil and Kamil. They make me stronger." he said time and time again." – Khuraira Mouehla
