Ronald McDonald House programs, located near top children’s hospitals, allow parents who are far from home to stay close to their hospitalized child and benefit from the comforts of home without incurring hotel and food costs.
Dominique was invited to visit the children and their families staying at the Baltimore, MD Ronald McDonald House on July 26.
Judging by the smiles on the faces of the children in these photos, Dominique did his job well! For the children, it was a welcome break from the daily regime of pain and cancer treatments. For the parents and siblings, it was an opportunity to see the pure joy on their child’s faces as they interacted with Dominique. It was the first time many of them had ever seen a live horse up close.
Each child was given a plush Dominique to keep thanks to the caring people who make donations to Dominique’s Smiles.
