Reviews for Miracle Flights for Kids
Miracle Flights has been essential in the recovery and care of our son. We cannot give enough praise! Easy to work with, caring and kind, and able to help us with our needs. Thank you Miracle Flights!
My son has an extremely rare and complex genetic disease. The only location that can provide care, treatment and research is half way across the country. He must be seen there frequently, currently every three months. We are already in a financial struggle for many reasons, but medical is certainly a big reason. Miracle Flights for Kids has helped tremendously! We would do anything for our son, and spend every dime we have to get him what he needs. We are so very fortunate that Miracle Flights has provided flight assistance for him. This has made making this frequent medical trip so much easier to take on and has helped our family emotionally, financially and spiritually. They are truly a blessing! and we offer our heartfelt gratitude to all they do for us and so many others.
Miracle Flights was an answer to a prayer!! They also made the process extremely easy and I was able to see the surgeon I could not have been able to see if it had not been for this wonderful resource. Thank you Miracle Flights!!

Miracle Flights helped my wife and I take our 3 year old son to Cincinnati Children s Medical Center for his Eosinophilic Disorder and also for his hyper-mobility of joints. We live in Southern Utah and from the past 4 years of medical expenses with our son it has drained our financial resources. But with the help of Miracle Flights we were able to see the best doctors in the country to help our son. We received the care and attention needed at the hospital and now have a great plan going forward with our son to grow and develop properly. There are not words to express our appreciation to Miracle Flights. They are a wonderful organization of well trained professionals. They took care of our travel plans and communicated to us very well on those plans to help us with our trip. I would highly recommend their services and plead with those with financial resources to help them keep this great service going. Its tough as a parent to watch your child have medical needs that cannot be met because of financial restrictions, but Miracle Flights eliminates those restrictions so parents can get their kids the medical treatments they need. Thank you Miracle Flights, we love you.

Thank you for all you do to make it possible for my son and I to travel from Canada to our hospital in the United States for much needed medical care in my son's very rare illness.
I have 2 boys that have muscular dystrophy. We went to Cincinnati Childrens to see a top rated Dr there. Miracle Flights for kids helped us out by getting us a flight to Cincinnati. Our experience with Miracle Flights was great and we would definitely use them again and also tell others about the great service we received.
MFFK has been such a tremendous blessing. I can hardly put into words how essential this charity is to my son's care. Without this charity I would not be able to bring my son as often as he needs from Alaska to Colorado. Thank you to everyone who is part of this amazing charity and to all who give to help families like our own. God Bless you all.
Miracle Flights is a god send! Their generosity made it possible for my wife and son to travel to St. Louis for treatment of his club feet. Without their assistance, the cost of travel would have made seeing the specialists there unaffordable for our family.
I had to go to Chicago for a transplant and I'm in fl they covered the flight 3 times round trip
My name is Jenny, I am a single mother of six children and I have worked full time for 40 years. I was diagnosed in April 2014 with Multiple Myeloma. I started with radiation treatments unfortunately it was not successful. I then started chemotherapy. My physicians felt that the best option for a longer remission was a stem cell transplant. Multiple Myeloma has no cure but it is treatable. They recommended Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. They are renowned in Multiple Myeloma treatments and the latest research studies available. I have always been healthy so this was a devastating shock to me. Even though this disease is treatable who wants to live a life constantly worrying about every pain and ache, and the forever testing and more than likely multiple stem cell transplants. That in itself was extremely difficult to go through. I was filled with anxiety as I knew there was no way I could possibly afford travel to Minnesota. My budget was already nonexistent due to the fact that I am on disability at only 60% of my pay and I still have three children in the home to support, not to mention medical bills. I made a phone call to the American Cancer Society to see if there was any foundations that provide medical flights at no cost for cancer patients. They gave me Miracle Flights number and that's when things looked up. I needed to fly to Minnesota to date 4 times. My stem cell transplant is completed, and I leave in a few days for a followup biopsy to see if it was successful. I have never encountered such an amazing, incredible organization in all my life. Miracle Flights took a heavy heavy burden off me. Here I needed life saving treatment at the best location for my particular disease and every flight was made possible for me and my caregiver. Simply incredible because they are truly helping to save my life by allowing me access to the very best physicians and hospital for my disease. I can not possibly in words alone express my gratitude and heartfelt thankfulness. I promise though that as soon as I am back on my feet and back to work I will absolutely donate to this charity and spread the word of their outstanding foundation and the kindness of their employees. From my heart I thank you!
