                  Thanks for Caring!
                  We wish to thank all of those who participated in our 2008 Care Bears™ Toy fundraiser!
                  Thanks to the generous support of our community, we raised more than $7,000 and
                  delivered 500 Care Bears™ Toys to children in area hospitals.

                  Individuals from all over the country purchased personalized Care Bears™ and
                  supported the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House. Look for these little bears again
                  next year!

                  Thank you ALL for your support!

      After 10 Months!
      Michael Moreno Goes Home
                                                  When we first arrived at the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House (LLRMH) we did
                                                  not know what to expect. We had just learned that our two year old son needed a
                                                  heart transplant. The night manager welcomed us with open arms and the most
                                                  comforting voice I had heard in awhile. As time went by we grew very close to the
                                                  LLRMH staff and the Loma Linda Children’s Hospital staff. We consider them family.

                                                  Even though our son was the primary focus for everyone, the staff at Loma Linda
                                                  Hospital and LLRMH showed genuine concern for the entire family. They always
                                                  included us in events which helped us to remember that there was another world
                                                  out there even though there were times we just wanted to be alone; it actually did
                                                  help us get out and do something productive, it helped us to be stronger for our
                                                  son. Our future with our son is very precious, so precious that Michael Sr. and I are
                                                  just taking it day by day with him. I think that is all we can do, take it day by day
                                                  to make sure he will be normal little boy able to enjoy life and whatever obstacles
                                                  come at him. We are very excited to be home!

     Continued from cover

         As time went by we weren’t sure
     how Michael would awake, or if he
     would he be able to talk or walk again.
     Doctors told our Mother he would be
     a “vegetable” for the rest of his life and
     asked what home she would like to
     put him in. My mother kindly said “I’m
     taking my baby home”. After many
     months we were finally approved to
     take him home.
          The very next morning of our first
     night home, we lied on the couch and
     listened to music, my cell phone went
     off and Michael smiled and laughed!
     It was the first smile we had seen in
     months. He had an angelic glow to
     him and we all knew that this was the
     first of many miracles yet to come.
         It’s been almost three years and
     Michael has exceeded the Doctors               that he may be in pain, we believe in      youth group do our best to give back
     expectations. One of the many                  our hearts that he will be able to walk    to the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald
     blessings has been when my mother              on his own one day, and we believe         House by volunteering as we cook
     holds Michael up to help him balance           we will hear him speak again. He has       for the families who are staying there
     his body, and he steps one foot in             shown everyone to “never say never”        now. Also, we are all collecting the
     front of the other. The Doctors are            and to “never give up”. He is a fighter    pull-tabs and Pennies from the Heart.
     speechless as my mother shows them             and we know there is no such word as       Michael and our family will also be at
     what Michael can do, because they              impossible, but there is such a word as    the Relay for Kids on May 17, 2009 and
     know they are witnessing a miracle             Miracle.                                   hope you will be there to witness a
     in their own eyes. Though Michael                 You will see my family, friends and     miracle as Michael walks a few steps!
     can still not talk or give us any sign
A Four Year Old’s Spirit of Giving
When four year old Hannah Bahri’s mother explained about collecting pull tab for the Loma
Linda Ronald McDonald House, Hannah was diligent collecting pull tabs to support the
families that stay at the House. When Hannah and her mother visited the House this year
to deliver her sizable collection of pull tabs she also learned of our Pennies from the Heart
fundraising program. Just like she did with the pull tabs, Hannah took a special interest in her
coin collecting. She set aside her Cinderella piggy bank and began collecting loose change in
her new Ronald McDonald House penny can. Within four months she collected over $50!!

“Hannah’s spirit of giving is instilled; she makes me proud that she is always thinking of giving”
said Hannah’s mother.

We thank Hannah for her generous efforts and invite everyone to be part of our 2009 Pennies
from the Heart fundraiser. Let’s all follow in Hannah’s footsteps and make this the biggest year
yet for Pennies from the Heart!

For more details or to get your penny can and start collecting, please call 909-558-8300.
