The Hurst Family Story

“The peace of mind the Ronald McDonald House gave us is indescribable. The House gave us less to worry about in dealing with the health crises of our son, especially being so far from home.” – The Hurst Family


At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho, we provide comfort and reassurance to families. They know they have a place to eat and sleep while their child receives medical treatment. The Hurst family was able to have peace of mind whenever they traveled to Boise for their son, Hunter’s, treatment.


From the time Hunter was born, he has had medical complications that sometime require the Hurst family to drop what they are doing and head to the hospital. Hunter has endured multiple surgeries including one that removed his entire large intestine. He was later diagnosed with kidney disease and received an ileostomy. Since the ileostomy, his conditions have improved.


Over the years, the Hurst family has continued to travel to Boise for tests or procedures. Through it all, the Ronald McDonald House has been there to support the Hursts during Hunter’s medical fight.


Thank you to everyone who supports Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho. With your help we are able to support families like the Hurst family, everyday.
