Aden Womack and Chelsea Pope

Meet Aden Womack, 4, and his mom, Chelsea Pope, who stayed with us for 8 weeks, including 2 weeks at a partner hotel, so Aden could complete the Multidisciplinary Feeding Program at the Marcus Autism Center.

Staying at our House near Egleston provided Chelsea and Aden, who are from Meriwether County, the space to rest after long treatment days.

“The House team was very accommodating and kind in providing us a safe place to stay close to the facility,” Chelsea says. “Aden looked forward to returning to the House after a six-hour day of therapy and just playing — this definitely made it easier for Aden.”

Aden’s favorite thing about staying with at the House are the toys. “He loved his gifts,” Chelsea says, including his superhero accessories.

Being able to stay at the House meant Aden could complete the program, Chelsea says.

“Honestly, we wouldn’t have been able to successfully complete his treatment without the Ronald McDonald House,” Chelsea says. “It made a huge difference. Aden looked forward to a good bath, rest, and peace of mind. That reset made it easier to keep his corporation during treatment.”
