Healing Garden

Not only does our Ronald McDonald House provide a warm, inviting atmosphere, we have now extended that feeling beyond the walls of the House with our Healing Garden. The Garden offers itself as a welcome to everyone who steps through the arbor entrance and walks along the winding path. A stroll will take you past blooming perennials, ornamental grasses, a 'heart garden', a whimsical hop-scotch court, cascading water fountain, boulders, a life-sized sculpture of children and benches where you can sit, reflect and enjoy your surroundings.

The Healing Garden was envisioned and spearheaded by a former Ronald McDonald family, the Davis family. After suffering a great loss, the Davis' felt a need to share life, love and loss with those who may have similar experiences and joy, healing and remembrance for all. Here is their story:

    "My name is Treasure Davis and my husband Aaron and I want to tell you about a very Special and meaningful project at the Ronald McDonald House, the creation of a Healing Garden. We are a former House family as our daughter, Serenity Aryn, was born eight weeks early in 2003. Knowing first hand and believing in the Ronald McDonald House Charities mission, I signed on as a Board member, having served for the last four years. The Healing Garden holds personal significance for me and my family; I'm grateful To also to be the mother of our son, Sterling Michael, who, at 33 weeks gestation passed away on April 21st, 2008, after being stillborn. Sterling is our miracle son who we had hoped and prayed for."

As a celebration of life, a wall has been erected in the Garden for placement of tiles that can serve in memory of or as a celebration to a special child in our lives. The 6"x6" tiles are $25 each... and are available to paint, or you can tell us what you would like the tiles contain and we can paint them for you at no additional cost.

Tiles can be painted at:

Tiles will be displayed for year to come!!!

We welcome you to stop by the Healing Garden any time... whether you are a guest in the House or not. It is truly a fulfilling experience that will leave you with your heart full of love and joy.
