Help for parents of young cancer patients

WEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Parents whose children are undergoing cancer treatment in Philadelphia now have a new place to unwind and relax.

Children's Hospital Thursday unveiled its newest "Ronald McDonald family room" at the Seashore House in University City.

The rooms are designed to help families forget they are in a hospital setting while still remaining close to their childrens' beds.

The facility provides meals, snacks, beverages, activities, and entertainment.
