RMH-NY can accommodate 95 families. Its location in Manhattan, in close proximity to major cancer treatment centers, draws children and families from across the country and the world, as well as from the metropolitan New York City area. Since its founding, more than 59,000 families from across the country and world have stayed at RMH-NY. RMH-NY partners with 16 leading cancer treatment hospitals in the New York City area, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, NYU Langone Medical Center, New York-Presbyterian Hospital's Weill Cornell Medical Center and Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital.

Since 1972, the Don Monti Foundation has raised 47 million in the fight against cancer. The Foundation is dedicated to Patient Care, Research, and Education in the fields of oncology and hematology. One-hundred percent of every dollar donated supports their endeavors by serving patients being treated in the Don Monti Cancer Centers throughout Northwell Health; supporting the research activities of their scientists at the Joseph & Tita Monti Research Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory; and fostering the academic enrichment of students in the Joseph, Tita & Don Monti Masters Program in Genetic Counseling at Long Island University’s Post Campus. Their immediate goal is to ease the pain and suffering of patients and to help their families at a time of great need. Their ultimate goal – FINDING A CURE.
