During my PhD research my son John was born with a hereditary muscle disease. Because of this, he is regularly admitted to the hospital, sometimes for months on end. Thanks to the Ronald McDonald house in Groningen my wife and I could be there as much as possible for our son. I have therefore started a fund raiser for the Ronald McDonald house.
