I am a mother of a 20 year old with tuberous sclerosis. My daughter is on an experimental drug that we hope will shrink the kidney tumors as well as the brain tumors. I am unable to afford these flights that we have been taking now for a year. Thus far, there has been some improvements, however we are hopeful that her continued participation will show even more promise. We know of no other potential "help" out there other than this study in Phoenix. I am so very grateful for Miracle Flights for their continued support in providing flights for us from Austin to Phoenix, especially because my daughter is unable to fly by herself due to seizures as well as disorientation. Thank you Miracle Flights!!!

Our son was diagnosed with a cancer a couple years ago at the age of 2. We have done several different treatments to try and help him. Because of treatment locations and costs, we would have been unable to treat his cancer so well if it were not for the help of Miracle Flights for Kids. We have been greatly blessed by the generosity of this organization. We hope that someday we will have the means to give back as we have been given. Thank you!

We have two children who have a rare brain disorder. Whene they were diagnosed, we searched the country for the neurosurgeon with the most experience with theri condition. The doctor we found was 850 miles away in Iowa. Our daughter has needed 5 surgeries, and our son 2--- without Miracle Flights for Kids, we never could have made these life saving journeys. Everyone we deal with is kind and compassionate, and always eager to help. We are so fortunate to have them in our lives-- they allow us to focus on our children-- and have one less worry! Thank you!!

The overall process was very easy and Quick. There was allot of paper work to fill out, butt it was with the time. The hardest part was getting the Doctors to send in there information. Everyone I talked to on the phone was plight and responded quickly. Cant thank Miracle Flights enough for the help they provide for my daughter.

Thanks Tim

I want to thank Miracle Flights for everything thing they have done for me and my family and most importantly my duaghter. Me and my family live in Ontario California we are a family of four now but unfortunately our life did a complete turnaround. My duaghter was born a healthy baby with no health problems at all, but unfortunately a stomach flu changed her whole life and ours. My daughter was diagnosed with OMS (Opsoclonus Myoclonus syndrome) which is something really rare that i have never heard of. We did not have a cure or treatment available for my daughter from the doctors here in California, all the doctors could say is this problem your daughter is having will go away with time and it didnt. As parents we looked and looked online trying to get some answers and find someone that could help our daughter get better and be a normal child. We found a doctor in Springfield Illonois that had our answers but the problem was how are we going to get there? We did not have any funds to fly us out there, so now as a parent you have to brace ourselves and figure out who can help? We knew that a possible cure was in Springfield but there was no way of getting there untill we found Miracle Flights on the web. I called Miracle Flights and they were really supportive with every question I had for them. They sent me a packet that had a step by step on what they needed to help me and most importantly to help our sick daughter. I reached out to my daughters doctors, faxed all the paperwork the packet requested and in a day i received the call that changed my daughters lifes and everbodies around her. Miracle Flights called me and told me that we are approved to fly to Springfield Me and my wife and my daughter, there has never been any more better news than to hear Miracle Flights are able to help us. I cant never stop thanking Miracle Flights for all they have done for me and my family and wish that anybody donating to this wonderful organization can realize that its not only families they are helping but they are helping the innocent lives of our babies/children throughout all United States. My daughter found her doctor and is going thru treatment and can now live a normal life thanks to the help of Miracle Flights and her doctor.Thank you soo much for listening to my story and thanks for everything you have done for us and thanks everybody that made it possible for my daughter.

I have a rare anemia and the main hospital is in NY that treats this condition. I was able to get flights booked through this organization with the help of the great staff! They coordinated all details even when there was a bit of a time crunch. I feel fortunate for Miracle Flights for Kids really put everything together for my trip. Thank You!

My son Tyler, age 8years old, was diagnosed with Legg-Calves Perthes Disease in his right hip in 2009. After many doctor visits and potential surgeries to help maintain his hip we found doctor Shawn Standard in Baltimore, Maryland @ Sinai Hospital who offered a different approach to helping Tyler maintain & repair his hip & femur without have to cut/shorten the bones. The only problem is we live in Portland, Oregon. Through a contact from the Perthes Support Group I discovered Miracle Flights...and this truly was a miracle! The staff was so patient and helpful with me concerning paperwork and getting the right information. We were able to fly to Baltimore, get Tyler's fixator removed, receive physical therapy, and come home to Portland with no problems at all on Southwest Airlines! Tyler even got to hang out with the pilot ;-) We are forever Thankful for the blessing Miracle Flights for Kids gave our Son!

I wanted to enroll my daughter in a medical study but it was in California and we live in Oregon. Miracle Flights to the rescue! They provided us with flights for both years we've been in the study and they are the only way we could participate. I tell everyone I know how easy they are to work with and what a great service they provide. Two thumbs up for this charity providing such a vital role in the world of special needs!

Streamline the process and only have one person process paperwork. I had several different people ask me for the same information.

my son was diagnosed with tourettes at 4 and we were in a state that knows very little of this. We could not finacialy afford to fly and stay and our car would not have made a 12 hour trip to Mayo. MFFK was able to get us there and there was no problems. years later my son was in a car wreck and his tourettes got worsr and the Mayo was able to do an experimental surgery to help him and they were there for us again. While we were at the Mayo back home my dad was getting worse from brin cancer and they were willing to help us rearrange tickets to gt back if we needed They really care and are there for kids and parents so parents have one less thing to worry about. They believe everyone deserves care no matter where. We appreciate you
