Review from Guidestar
June 26, 2012

With having been diagnosed with Cancer I have not been able to work for the past 3 years. We have been searching for a doctor and facility that has some hope. We found such a place in Illinois at the CTCA but it required traveling there every month to 3 weeks and with just my Wifes income we barely keep up with the bills. We Thank Miracle Flights and you for your donations so they can help others. Thanks for all you have done to help me.

Our son has juvenile dermatomyositis and was diagnosed at age 8. He is now 17, and thanks to Miracle Flights, we have been able to fly him from CT to Chicago to be cared for by the world's expert on his disease. We go 3-4 times a year and the help we receive with flights is so very appreciated. His health is improving more each time we go, and we know that's because he is able to receive such great care. Thank you Miracle Flights!!!!

Both of my children have rare brain conditions and multiple other medical conditions that make their treatment complicated and beyond the experience of our local doctors. Miracle Flights enabled us to see the best Neurosurgeon in the US and further our medical journey. Without them it would not have been possible and my childrens health would be in jeopardy.

I found them online thru a support group for kids with the same condition as mine have.

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

They have literally kept our sanity intact by enabling us to travel to the doctor who best understands their multiple medical conditions and verified things the local doctors could not. Without their help we would still be in the dark about conditions that should have already been addressed.

Our family has been blessed by Miracle Flights many, many times for our children with rare disorders. We already wrote a review for them. THIS one is for me. Many do not know they also aid adults and I too have the rare disorders my children do and require care across country. As usual everything was done efficiently and perfectly with friendly communication. Those gals in the office are wonderful and we now consider them a part of our medical family because we could not take care of everything without them. THANK YOU Miracle Flights For Kids !!

Miracle Flights has come through again for our family. We just returned from a trip across country to a see a specialist for an incurable disease for our daughter and we leave again through the gracious help from Miracle Flights as I need spine and brain surgery in NYC. They are always there for us, always ready to help ....we couldn't run this medical 3 ring circus without them. The gals who run everything are so quick, efficient and help me get things done on time. THANK YOU AGAIN Miracle Flights for Kids !!!

We just returned from our 16th trip across country for medical care. We have several children with rare diseases/disorders and must travel for care. Without Miracle Flights For Kids we could not get the care our kids need. I don't say that lightly....I MEAN we could NOT get the critical care needed because flights are so expensive.

They are very special even among the charities who do this work because they allow both parents to fly and I have disabilities and need my husband's help. Plus, of course, our children need both of us while in the hospital and post-surgery.

We have been the recipients of their genersoity many, many times and they always accomodate us and care about the kids. Everytime they schedule a flight for us to go home from a trip, Becky always says,"You know we're here when you need us". It is emotional just writing that. To know people care who have never even met us is so special.

Miracle Flights is an amzing charity. We have several children with rare disorders/diseases that require extensive travel for testing and surgeries. Just the medical mumbo-jumbo is overwhelming financially but the travel puts it all over the top. It would be impossible for us to get the care our children need 3,000 miles from home without Miracle Flights. It is not however, only the free flights. The gal in charge has been so kind and understanding. Calling us when we found out we had to change plans, when one of our children needed brain surgery right after another had just had it. She told us, not to panic, that when we needed to get back to NYC for the next surgery, "We'll be here when you need us, I don't want you to have to think about this on top of everything else". Of course I was in tears that she cared enough to say that. The combination of their material help coupled with kindness is so helpful when you live in the medical world. The flights were easy, to the airports we requested and with great airlines. We cannot say enough about this charity....our children could NOT get care if it were not for their generosity. Warm Regards, Ed and Lisa Currall WA, USA

My daughter, Alena, was born with cleft lip and palate. After researching our choices in Hawaii, we chose a team of doctors in Portland. Miracle Flights went above and beyond to help us fly there. We are so grateful for Miracle Flights!

Let me begin by saying that we are so appreciative and thankful for Miracle Flights for Kids. They have flown us 3 years in a row for our daughter's outpatient appointment to Cincinnati Children's Hospital and it has been such a blessing. We just traveled in the beginning of May and unfortunately had a rough experience. Miracle Flights booked us a flight from Tampa (our home town) to Denver, CO and then on to Dayton, OH. I was concerned because our layover in Denver was only 30 minutes, which didn't leave much time for catching another flight. Of course, our flight out of Tampa was delayed for maintenance issues and we were late arriving in Denver, which caused us to miss our connecting flight. The most unfortunate part was that Frontier Airlines didn't offer any additional flights to OH until late the next afternoon, but our daughter's appointment was at 2PM. The airline 'customer service' counter said there was nothing they could do to get us to OH on time and they were extremely rude to our family. Once we explained our situation and our daughter's medical condition, they accomodated us by booking us tickets on another airline and flew us from Denver to Miami and then from Miami straight into Cincinnati. This caused a lot of stress for our family...we were in airports and on planes for well over 24-hours straight, which was really difficult on our 2-year old daughter. We unfortunately did not make it to Cincinnati in time for our appointment, but we were very lucky that the doctors at the hospital were understanding and kept the clinic open until after 6PM for our visit. During this process, our luggage was lost and all of our hotel accomodations had to be canceled (since we were originally flying into Dayton and then it changed to Cincinnati at the last minute.) We were disshoveled during our daughter's appointment and that made it a lot more difficult and stressful. Everything ended up working out and our luggage was brought to the hospital and we had a wonderful rest of our stay in Cincinnati. This annual visit is always overwhelming and difficult for our family, which is why I try to have as much as I can planned and organized. Missing our connecting flight made all this spiral out of control and caused a lot of unnecessary stress for us. As I mentioned earlier, we are so very grateful for Miracle Flights and all they have done for us. We hope that, by sharing our story, Miracle Flights will not schedule anymore connecting flights for families that are so close and can potentially be missed from even a minor delay. It's important to remember that families traveling for medical reasons are already under a lot of stress as is, so making the proper accomodations to ensure that they arrive on time for their appointments should be a top priority.

We have been going through an ordeal for the past 4 years since our 3 year old son was diagnosed with bi-lateral retinal blasting in 2007. With flight assistance from Miracle Flights, we were able to seek the highest level of care available where we were assisted with flights from California to New York for our son to be treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Center.

Over the past 3 years, Miracle Flights network has assisted us with our flight requests from California to New York for my son's treatments. Recently, we needed immediate assistance for a flight for our new born in order to get testing and examination done at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital on short notice. Miracle Flights came through for us and we were able to keep the critical appointments in order for our new born to be evaluated and tested.

Our son was diagnosed with bi-lateral retinal blastoma 3 years ago at age 3. The best available methods of treatment were available at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Center in New York. Miracle Flights network was able to assist us numerous times for our flight needs from California to the treatment center in order to afford the best avilable care for our son.

Miracle Flights for Kids is amazing! If it weren't for them we would not have been able to afford to get our son to a hospital that was 800 miles away for treatment. The services that they provide for families is a lifesaver, literally. We hope to be able to fly with them in the future for upcoming treatment. Thank you so much Miracle Flights for Kids, you took a stress away that no one else could!

Review from Guidestar
April 24, 2012

When my six year old daughter had a relapse in her club foot, we learned about a doctor who specializes in this. We desired to get her to him since most doctors were skeptical about non-surgical treatment. However, he was in Iowa, and we live in SC. Driving was not really an option, nor was our paying for a flight. Due to the doctor's schedule, we did not have a large window of time to work with, but Rebecca at Miracle Flights worked really hard to secure a flight for us. We were so incredibly blessed to be able to fly to Iowa to see this doctor. This organization is a wonderful ministry to those of us who need to take our children distances to secure the best possible healthcare. We are so so grateful for them!
