To Kayla and Carl Griffin, the Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth (RMHFW), was the closest thing to a sense of normalcy that they experienced after their son, CT, was born with a congenital heart defect. Traveling back and forth from Waco, Texas was not an option with CT being so sick. Their social worker at Cook Children’s Medical Center introduced them to RMHFW. The Griffins, along with Kayla’s parents, stayed at the House for 197 days. CT is now in Houston awaiting a heart transplant.
