Ronald McDonald Family Room Wish List

The Ronald McDonald Family Room is located on the 5th floor (Pediatric Critical Care Unit) of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.  The Family Room is a place where families can come to relax and have something to eat and drink when they feel they just need to walk away from the bedside but still need to be close to their child.
