We adopted our son from China in June 2015. Little did we know that his special needs would be more severe than we were expecting. After having him home for a few weeks, we realized the care he would need would be at Cincinnati Children's Hospital in Ohio which is about a six hour drive from our home. We heard about Miracle Flights through another friend that had been given the gift of travel from them so we also applied. We have had the blessing of receiving flights for two of our trips to Ohio and will be having to take our son there more this year. This organization has a made stressful time in our lives more bearable as we do not have to worry about the money it takes to get our son to his doctors. Miracle Flights has played a huge role in our son's life!

Our daughter is suffering from an illness where her stomach does not function. After many treatments and visits to many specialists we now have a treatment plan. This journey has been hard and difficult. We are not out of the woods but thanks to the kindness and generosity of Mircle Flights, our daughter has been allowed to receive care from medical specialists not found anywhere near our home state.

This past trip was the second time Mircle Flights has helped our child receive care for her illness and we are so very grateful to them.

This nonprofit company gives families peace of mind during times of uncertainty.

Miracle Flights get patients that need essential care to the doctors that can treat them.

Thank you Miracle Flights!

The Logan Family

Miracle Flights is a true life saver for me. They went far beyond expectations making sure I got to the appointments that I needed to. I have used them on more than one occasion and don't know what I would do without their support.

Miracle flights hands down is a great support for families that need help getting a flight for an important trip. I was very pleased with the treatment both I and my mom received. And I would recommended any family to chose miracle flights as an option for help to have a flight that they need.

Miracle Flights has made it possible for our son to see a renowned doctor for his rare muscular-skeletal condition. Miracle Flights takes one less stress out of our lives by providing my son and myself flights from California to Philadelphia. Without Miracle Flights, we would not be able to make these trips or would have to sacrifice much more than we already do to help pay medical expenses. HUGE shout out to Miracle Flights!!!

Can't thank Miracle Flights enough. My son has a rare lifelong medical condition and there are very few doctors in the US that know how to properly treat him. We live on the West Coast and his doctor is on the East Coast. My son has required multiple surgeries and therapies that we would have never been able to give to him due to the cost of airfare getting back and forth from the West Coast to East Coast. We are so grateful for the services of MiracleFlights.

Our son Bryson has a congenital muscular condition called arthrogryposis that affects all four of his extremities. All of our local doctors have given up on him saying there was nothing more they could do for him. It wasn't until we found a doctor whose expertise is in our son's condition that we were given hope that his quality of life could improve. Unfortunately for us, we are on the West Coast and his doctor is on the East Coast. We are grateful for Miracle Flights being willing to help our son get the best care he possibly could receive by helping us with the expense of air travel. What at huge stress relief this is for our family at this time. Thank you!

Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

Miracle Flights has been just that…a True Miracle for me. I have a serious bone marrow chronic illness called Myelofribrosis which I have been fighting for over 4 years and the disease has drained my finances and savings. I have had to fly back and forth to Southern Calfiornia for better medical care as I retired in Nicaragua about 4 years ago. The trip I am scheduled on, will help me to obstain the only approved FDA drug called Roxolitinib which will extend my life. I am meeting with a team of hemologists at for consultation and blood tests atThe San Diego VA as well as receiving the prescription drug. Without Miracle Flights to help me, I would not have transportation to receive Roxilitinib and consult with my hematologist. Miracle Flights is truly saving my life.

The staff has been very compassionate, understanding and so very helpful in working with me to secure my flight and reservation. I can not express enough appreciation, gratitude and acknowledgement to Jessica, Rebecca and the entire staff. They are all making a great contribution to people and patients who would be auffering and unable to secure great medical care for their well being and survival.
God Bless Them
Sincerely,
Michael Altschu

My son has an inoperable stage 3 brain tumor that after traditional treatment has shown some progression. There are few treatment options. My son was accepted into a clinical trial which requires our traveling from Northern Wisconsin to Pittsburgh every 3 weeks. This treatment would be impossible without Miracle Flights funding transportation for my son and I. Miracle Flights has provided us tickets for five trips so far. They also provide flights for both parents to fly to the appointments. The only improvement I would like to see is that they would allow another family member to fly in place of a second parent in certain situations. I have 9 children so my husband stays home to take care of the other kids. I have to bring my nursing baby with. It is getting difficult to travel with a baby and a 11 year old son who has challenges with his mobility. I wish I could bring his older sister or a Grandparent with to help out. Other than that, I am very grateful for all they do!
