Share A Night

Families faced with pediatric cancer bear tremendous financial burdens associated with their child’s care and treatment. When you join the Share a Night Campaign, you can help to relieve families of some of that burden by sharing the cost of their stay at the House. Families are asked to contribute just $25 per night’s stay — a fraction of the actual cost of $200 per night — but many are unable to pay even that amount. Thanks to gifts from friends like you, no family is ever turned away due to their inability to pay.

Jathaniel Age 4, Rio Grande Valley

Meet 4-year-old Jathaniel: bike rider, courageous kid, loyal younger brother. Jathaniel was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome; simply put, he has half of a heart. Now with social distancing and the fear of catching COVID-19, waiting for his transplant is more complicated and scary.

Jathaniel’s parents, with their older son, left the Rio Grande Valley to go to Texas Children’s Hospital during his mom’s pregnancy. They stayed at RMH Houston for 1½ years until Jathaniel was healthy enough to go home. They came back seven months ago to wait for a donor heart.

After almost 800 nights at RMHH, this amazing family is now waiting for Jathaniel’s surgery and complete recovery. They are only asked to contribute $25 per night — a fraction of the actual $250 cost. Thanks to gifts from friends like you, no family is ever turned away due to their inability to pay.

Our Share a Night project provides huge relief for families like Jathaniel’s. By sharing the cost of their overnight stays, you help families whose kids are in the middle of critical health treatment. Especially during the Coronavirus crisis, these families need a safe, clean, affordable place to stay.

Please Share a Night with our families. Every gift helps. Every gift counts.
