19 Jan Meet Our Families – Jamie Kate Clay
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta provides a home-away-from-home for over 1,000 families each year and we love when our families share their stories. The Roberts family shared this story (edited for publishing).
Jamie Kathryn, called Jamie Kate by her family, is the only surviving Clay triplet. The triplets were born at 27 weeks, 4 days, and two of the babies could not survive such an early birth, devastating their parents. However, Jamie Kate has been a rockstar since day one! She was born strong-willed with a load of personality that she has on full display all the time. She is now 100% free of medical therapies and has had no lasting effects from being a micro-preemie. She is truly a living miracle and the light of her family’s eyes.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Augusta serves over 1,000 families each year. Our volunteer-run community kitchen serves over 15,000 meals, and our volunteers and families run over 5,000 loads of laundry every year.
We hope that this story has inspired you to get involved and help families just like this one. The staff, our volunteers, and the Board of Directors thank the Heath family for sharing their story and we hope everyone will get involved.
