Reviews for Miracle Flights For Kids

Rating: 5 stars  

My daughter, Katie, was diagnosed with a lesion/cyst inside the pineal gland located in the center of the brain in October 2014. This enlarged pineal gland created pressure in the brain causing Katie to suffer daily with symptoms of pressure-type headaches, visual issues, dizziness, nausea, fatigue and struggled daily to attend school. If not treated, the lesion/gland could have caused other issues such as loss of vision and seizures.
After many MRIs, appointments with neurologists and neurosurgeons in our home state of New York and in Vermont, our family searched for a second opinion. We located a surgeon in Los Angeles, Californa that would be able to perform a less invasive procedure - endoscopic surgery
Our New York State health insurance did not cover this out-of-state, non-participating provider’s procedure. The cost of the procedure required out-of-pocket payment. The surgery also required a 7 day stay. Travel and accommodations were also an added expense.
Our family learned of Miracle Flights. Miracle Flights staff were extremely helpful, friendly and were able to assist us in obtaining two airline tickets from New York to California and return.
Katie’s surgery was performed on April 7th and it was found that the original diagnosis of a lesion/cyst inside the pineal gland deep in the mid brain was actually a tumor. Our family is forever grateful to Miracle Flights for their assistance. Without their assistance, our family would not have known what to do to help her relieve her pain and suffering.
Katie recovered successfully and with the assistance of our home school and in-home tutors, Katie was able to graduate from high school in June. One additional hour of missed school would have put her into summer school and deferred her enrollment into college. We are thankful that Miracle Flights were able to work with us quickly to get her to California for the surgery.
Without the assistance of Miracle Flights, Katie would still be suffering to this day and would not have been able to pursue her continued education to someday become a psychologist.

This organization was amazing during the entire process from coordinating the trip to the return home. The ease of communication and helpfulness along the way alleviated a lot of stress in the travel process especially when the travel was for medical purposes. Very friendly and professional staff. The gift in the mail (t-shirt and luggage tag) to my child ahead of time was wonderful and a pleasant surprise! Our family is very grateful for the generosity for ALL of those involved in making the flight happen so that our son could travel to the medical facility to continue his care. Thank you especially to those who donated their miles. Because of such generosity we can continue to travel with our son for his medical needs. Thank you again!

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 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.
