Local child gets help

Ronald McDonald takes time out to hold Elijah Miller, 11 months, of Cassville, at the Cassville Branch Library on Thursday. Miller's parents, Justin and Amanda Miller, stayed at the Ronald McDonald house in Springfield for two months while he was in the neonatal intensive care unit after his birth. They thanked Ronald McDonald and said because of the help received, their son will be celebrating his first birthday next month. The Ronald McDonald House provides a home-away-from-home for families so they can stay close by their seriously ill or injured child as they must spend an extended period of time away from home to get treatment for their child.
