Include this information as part of your employee induction and on-boarding is a great opportunity to embed your organisations values and culture and streamline the process in the long-term. So we can share the impact your employees are having on families throughout Sydney, we would encourage you to offer employees the option for their details to be shared with us.

Carlos' story...

Carlo Moore looks like your average 10-year old, but as the old saying goes, never judge a book by its cover.  Beneath the surface of this charismatic and happy adolescent lies a complex and life-changing health issue that has impacted not just Carlo’s day-to-day, but that of his parents and sister Grace.  What started out as severe reflux disease at five-years old has become something much more complicated: gastroparesis.  This condition means his stomach doesn’t empty and he requires tube feeding overnight.

While there is no cure for Carlo’s condition, he and his family live in hope that one day soon, things will change, allowing him to lead a life similar to that of his friends, away from hospitals, surgery and as he puts it, “away from his tubes”. 

Traveling interstate is not without its challenges and implications on work, the family dog and the new chicken coop, but for the Moore family they know that during each visit, they have a ‘home away from home’ and a support system to help them take one day at a time. 

As the family looks towards a healthy future for Carlo, they are also resolute in their commitment to raise awareness for Ronald McDonald House Charities Sydney as being a vital part of their journey: “All of the hospital visits and uncertainty takes a toll on the entire family, so knowing we have a place to stay, relax and feel supported is difficult to put into words – we are just so grateful to have this second home and second family”.    

A testament to the resilience of children, Carlo hasn’t let his condition and limitations slow him down.  He runs, he plays and when the Sydney Swans need a junior mascot, he’s always ready!
