Reviews for Miracle Flights For Kids
I am the mother of a child that had Erb's palsy. We live in NC, but the specialist is in Texas. We had no way to get there. We were already stressing with trying to ensure the insurance will cover the surgery. This is when I placed in contact with Miracle Flight, who was so helpful. I am so happy and grateful for their service.
My name is Janine Somma...I travel to houston tx for my cancer checkups and am blessed that there are companies out there like Miracle Flights to help with travel. They are caring, courteous people and there are no words to express my gratitude. So thank you so much!
Miracle Flights has been a god send. I do not know how we would have been able to afford to continue my daughter's treatment without their help. My daughter is on a trail medication and needs to see the doctor in NYC on a regular basis for MRI and follow-up appointment. I am very grateful for Miracle flights support.
Miracle Flights went above and beyond for our family. We couldn't have been more grateful!
Thanks to Miracle Flights we have been able to bring our children to a specialist in NYC mulitple times. Thankful they were there!
While the initial paperwork needed to be precise and seemed extensive and a little confusing, there was kind person at miracle flights to help get us through it. We were treated with care and got flights even with pretty short notice. Miracle flights also respected our privacy when it came to our story and social networking for themselves. This is rare and very appreciated. We will use miracle flights again and would recommend them to any family needing financial help with medical flights.
Nothing could have prepared us for the moment when our seventh child was diagnosed with a rare cancer at just 7 weeks old. His right eye was removed due to the extent of the tumor in that eye. We were hopeful that our road with cancer was finished and that no further treatment was needed.
12 weeks later, however, tumors were found in his remaining eye-and they were threatening the only vision he had left.
We had heard about a team of doctors in New York who had developed an intra-arterial chemotherapy procedure. Instead of delivering chemo to the whole body, they found a way to deliver the chemotherapy drugs directly to the eye.
Miracle Flights for kids provided us a way to seek this treatment for our little guy, avoiding some of the more damaging effects of systemic chemotherapy. They continue to help us get our son to NY for follow-up and ongoing treatment for his cancer.
We are so thankful for Miracle Flights and the difference they have made in saving our son's life and his vision.
Miracle Flights provides a very badly needed service for cancer sufferers who need to travel great distances for specialized treatment of their cancer. I have a very rare cancer which requires I fly at approximately three-month intervals for treatment and follow-up scans to assess the state in which the cancer is after treatment. Miracle Flights has been thorough and professional in evaluating my eligibility for this service and in providing the service itself. Without them I'd be in much worse shape than I am now. I really appreciate their help.
This is a wonderful program. The staff at Muracke Flughts for kids truly care about the families they serve. My daughter has had to travel out of state since she was born for numerous medical procedures. This would not have been possible without Miriacle Flights for Kids. Thank you!!!!!
We have to travel every six months to St. Louis, MO for our son Luis David surgeries, he is 8 years old and has a congenital scoliosis. We found Miracle Flights for Kids and they help us with the airline tickets when we most needed because we live in Guatemala, Central America and this help means a lot for a our family. It's a blessing to find an organization and people like this. Keep going!!
