When the Szott’s son Shane became extremely ill due to an e-coli infection, the Szott family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for 28 days. Within the first 48 hours at Children’s Hospital, Shane’s kidney function failed completely.
Shane’s diagnosis evolved into Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS), and he was placed on dialysis. Shane’s condition worsened as his blood pressure, heart function, and respiratory system all started failing. A team of wonderful doctors at Children’s Hospital released them from their nightmare – Shane recovered.
As far as the Szott family is concerned, the doctors performed a miracle.
Thad Szott, Shane’s father said, ““We knew the day Shane was released that we would be involved in giving back to both Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House. As an owner of 3 Chrysler dealerships, Thad was able to secure a donation that provided the funds needed to do a room makeover at the Ronald McDonald House. In addition, Thad joined the Board of Directors and every other month, his management staff volunteers at the House and cooks a breakfast for the residents. He also uses his marketing and social media skills to get other dealerships involved.
