RONALD McDONALD HOUSES to Receive When One Door Closes

Northville, MI.  January 20, 2011 – In the spring of 1998 teenager Alex Graham traveled with her parents Susie and Bill to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. There, lung surgery was performed in an attempt to stop the spread of cancer in her young body.  The Ronald McDonald House made it possible for Alex’s parents to stay close to their daughter by providing accommodations in a safe, clean and supportive environment.  Alex’s story and her remarkable wish granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation are detailed in the pages of When One Door Closes by Susie and Bill Graham with H. Thomas Saylor.

The Ronald McDonald House program provides a “home-away-from-home” at 300 locations around the globe.  Not only is it a place to stay, it is a place where families can learn and share. That’s why the publisher, Three Dot L.L.C., is pleased to offer a complimentary copy of the award winning When One Door Closes to Ronald McDonald House’s across North America.  When a family member is diagnosed with a life threatening illness it not only impacts the individual but family members, friends and the community — especially when the family member is a child or teen.  Alex’s story is a real world account about one of the most difficult of life challenges any individual or family can face.  Its authors hope readers will find the book both a source of valuable informational and one of inspiration.

Letters of notification to individual Ronald McDonald Houses and book shipments began in October of 2010, and the publisher hopes to complete the process by the end of 2011.
