Photo: BEN WATSON By IMOGEN NEALE Mayor Len Brown knows how important it is to have family around when you re critically ill. He suffered a massive heart attack onstage at a public event in 2008 and his wife Shan Inglis was diagnosed with throat cancer earlier this year. Both have also spent days and nights sitting by hospital beds, watching over their daughters. So Mr Brown nodded knowingly when Ronald McDonald House chief executive Wayne Howett showed him around the organis- ation s newest home away from home for patients and their famil- ies. My family stayed 24/7 with me for about two weeks, Mr Brown says. I ve been there -- I ve seen how important it is for families to be together. And when you re a child things are magnified. The ability to stay close at hand is critical to a child s wellbeing. The multi-storey building down the road from the Starship children s hospital will boast 18 family rooms and a manager s unit once refurbishments are com- plete Rooms will vary in size and lay- out according to a family s needs. One will be completed thanks to $60,000 raised by participants in the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays fun run earlier this year. Naturally parents want to be at the side of their child in hos- pital, but many out of town parents can t afford the accommo- dation costs, Mr Howett says. Being able to provide a place to stay free of charge, right by the hospital, takes some of the stress out of what is a very heart- wrenching time. Families staying in the house will also have access to a full-scale communal kitchen, playground and barbecue area. Such a facility doesn t come cheap and Mr Howett says funding is one of the greatest challenges facing Ronald McDon- ald House. The new building cost around $4.5 million to buy, $2.5m to refurbish and will have an annual operating budget of $1.5m. This is why cheques like the one from Fairfax Media and The Ports of Auckland are so warmly received. Ronald McDonald House would like to say a big thank you to Fair- fax Media and the Ports of Auck- land Round the Bays for gener- ously giving these proceeds from this year s run. Without Round the Bays this room would not have been poss- ible, Mr Howett says. Fairfax Media chief executive Allen Williams says it s wonderful that over 70,000 people have con- tributed to the family room through Round the Bays.
