What child looks like a princess wearing halo traction as though it was her crown? And what five year old tells the nurse who stuck her with an IV, to “walk the plank” for causing her pain? Precocious, sweet Zoe does.

Having traveled across the country so Zoe could undergo a life-altering spinal surgery at A.I. duPont Hospital for Children| Nemours, Zoe’s family needed a place to stay for several weeks.

“Being at [the House] has been the biggest blessing for us,” says Zoe’s Mom. “We have a wonderful place to lay our heads and we get a home-cooked meal every day. But what makes this Ronald McDonald House stand out is that everyone knows Zoe and her brother by name and they ask how she is doing. There is a real feeling of connection and we need that right now.”
