The book unites Tom’s unique observations with the powerful images of children and families who have stayed at Portland’s Ronald McDonald Houses, taken by award-winning photographer Bob Ray. You can view a preview of the book online. Or you can read the feature story from The Oregonian.  

No Small Thing

"Everywhere there are sick children far from home.  Everywhere there are worried families who need a place to stay while their children receive medical treatment.  And nearly everywhere (in more than 50 countries), Ronald McDonald Houses are helping.  I am reminded of Mother Teresa's observation 'We can do no great things - only small things with great love.'  There is great love here.  In the end, that's no small thing."
