The partnership between Ronald McDonald House and the Parramatta Eels is 27 years strong and is the longest partnership in Australian sport.
Over this 27 year partnership, Eels players have been bi-annually visiting Ronald McDonald House at Greater Western Sydney, a caring home away from home for families with seriously ill children receiving treatment at the Children’s hospital in Westmead.
RMH Greater Western Sydney has been a home away from home for Patrick Wheeler and his family for 758 nights, whilst he bravely battled liver cancer.
The Eels have been keeping up with Patrick’s journey, and wanted to wish him well now he’s home.

When families have to travel far from home to receive specialised medical care for their sick child, seeking accommodation in an unfamiliar place only adds to their stress and anxiety.
Though there is no place like home, Ronald McDonald House at Greater Western Sydney strives to provide a safe and comfortable environment where the whole family can stay together for the duration of their child’s treatment.
