“This year marks our House’s 30th anniversary,” said Bill Sorochak, executive director. “We are proud to feature 12-year-old Brian Murkison and his family. A 2011 car accident brought the entire family to the Memorial Hospital Campus. After a couple of days, the family was released from the Hospital except for Brian who remained in a coma for over a month. The Murkison’s have been a part of our Ronald McDonald House family ever since. We can’t thank the community enough for helping this family and the other families we host at the House.”
