The agent who helped me was very professional. All questions asked were replied in a timely manner. It was a nice surprise to receive my ticket the next day I sent in all my applications.
I felt Miracle Flight was here to help me. Thank you Miracle Flight for making this happen and saving many lives worldwide.

Miracle Flights was such a blessing to our family! From start to finish the process was seamless and they were quick to respond back to me with any questions I had. Our trip ended up having to be extended a week and they were very accommodating by changing our flight information. So thankful for Miracle Flights!

Miracle flights was a huge blessing to us! We were able to get the treatment our son needed that we couldn't get in our home state. It was the best decision I made to take my son to a different doctor after the first one didn't work out and miracleflights made it that much more easier by not having to worry about the flight cost. Everyone I have talked to on the phone was extremely helpful and courteous. I even had to change a flight home since we got to go home earlier then we thought and they were able to do that right away. A great organization to use and a great organization to donate to.

We usually spend 10 to 15 thousand out of pocket per year on my daughters medical expenses. In order to find specialized doctors we have to travel across the US. Miracle Flights has been extremely generous and has helped my family purchase plane tickets to these visits which helps us out extremely! Miracle Flights is an awesome honest organization and we appreciate their assistance so.much!!!!

Miracle Flights is so wonderful! I cannot express our gratitude enough. They've flown my son and I out 4 times for his doctor visits. I really don't know what we would have done otherwise because we are paying out of pocket for all his medical care. This helped so much. They are efficient, professional, and easy to work with too. We are so grateful for their help!

My family has been trying to figure out how we can get our children to see specialists. There is no one in our region who can help us or understands my children's conditions. Financially there was no way we could have afforded to go see these doctors. Miracle Flights made it happen for us!
The staff that helped us through the application process was friendly and helpful. We did have some challenges getting the application correct (make sure you actually initial the application and not just type in your initials and your doctor needs to sign the letter not your NP), but they helped us every step of the way.

While our plane ride was anything but smooth or short, traveling with an infant and toddler makes for an exhausting experience in the best of times, but when a less than 6 hour trip takes more than 16- most of it sitting on a plane- lets just say it was harrowing. That was Mother Nature and the airlines fault and nothing to do with Miracle Flights.

My family is indebted to them, and I know that we will need to use their services again in the future for my littles.

We were in need of a major open-heart surgery for our 1-year-old with congenital heart disease. The surgery was in California, and we live in Atlanta. We had already spent tens of thousands on medical bills in the last year and a half, and when Miracle Flights was able to pay for our flight out to CA and back, it was such a huge help for us! They were easy to work with and very on top of things. It was a great experience being served by them, and it made our hard times that much easier!
