Mission Accomplished
How one family's medical journey inspired them to help others.
The Jennings family knows what it feels like to have a medical emergency happen to their child. Caroline and David’s son, Charlie, was rushed to VCU Health after getting hit in the head with a golf ball. Caroline described how fortunate they were to be familiar with the area where their son was receiving treatment in and to be able to run home to recharge.
    After this experience, Caroline and David made a commitment to help families who were in similar situations and in need of support. A friend told them about Ronald McDonald House Charities and Caroline and David were eager to get involved.
