My daughter need to fly to Dallas from Reno for surgery on her foot. I contacted Miracle flights to see if they would be able to help us with the getting a flight to and from Dallas for the surgery. I was amaized at how quickly they responded and got us the flights that we needed. Miracle Flights staff was so prompt, and wonderful it took away alot of stress for me and my family.

have to dig deeper in to the company to see if there is anything there that needs fixing, because from my experience i see nothing that needs improvement.

My daughter needed to get to the MAYO clinic in Rochester, MN to undergo further research, treatment and perhaps find a diagnosis to her rare brain infection. I contacted Miracle Flights for Kids (whom we previously used in 2005) to assist us with our travel. I was believing God that they would at least pay for her flight and received a double blessing by them paying for me, her caretaker. Her paternal grandmother was able to be booked on our same flight (thanks to MFFK getting us the itinerary in time). Ms. Rebecca Boyce kept in close contact with me as I gathered all the required documentation and did an exellent job in carrying out our requests. I highly recommend Miracle Flights for Kids to be recipients of any grants and/or donations that would enable others to be blessed like we were.

I used to illegally (due to seizures) drive 7 hours in my un-airconditioned beater car to Las Vegas for MRIs and doctor appointments for my glioblastoma brain tumor. As my condition worsened, and my list of brain surgeries stacked up, this was no longer possible, and we were forced to either put flights on our mounting credit card debt or ask family for help. I've looked at many, many organizations that claim to help cancer patients, but don't actually do much but refer you to other organizations or sign you up for a "support group." Miracle Flights for Kids is the exact miracle that a 25 year old kid from Utah had been praying for, and is the first charity that has ever come through for us as victims of cancer.

My daughter has needed special medical attention found only in a few locations, all of which are in the eastern half of the U.S. and we live in the western half. Her need has required multiple trips. Without the aid of Miracle Flights we would not have been able to meet those needs and her potential for success would have been greatly handicapped. We are so greatful for Miracle Flight and Ronald McDonald Houses. These charities are a tremendous blessing.

My daughter, Avery was born with a rare condition called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), which affects the muscles and joints in her body.

We live in Michigan and initially sought treatment here locally, but after 15 months of seeing very little progress we ventured out to find
other options.

We found an amazing doctor and he is currently practicing at the Philadelphia Shriner's Hospital. We have been seeing him since Avery was 15 months old and without his expertise and passion for what he does, Avery would not have started walking when she was 2 1/2 years old....something our local doctors said she would NEVER do!!!!!

Miracle Flights has assisted us in traveling to see him. Avery will require ongoing treatment with him, which of course will also require frequent trips from Michigan to Philadelphia.

Thanks so much to Miracle Flights and to all who support it!!

Make the paperwork less....Maybe a onetime(or once a year) letter from doctor and then appointment letters to confirm appointments, rather than for every single flight.

Miracle flights has been such a blessing to our family. We have now been privileged to have received help from Miracle flights twice. We have 3 sons, and our youngest son who is 3 has had health problems since he was 6 months old. The medical bills and travel requirements have become overwhelming for our family. Feeling that we had drained our resources asking for help from family members, it was such a relief and miracle to have Miracle Flights step in and help. There are several medical specialists that our son needs that are not available in our area or even in our State. Because we live on an island, flight is a necessary part of our sons medical care. Miracle Flights has helped to ease some of that burden. Because time to care for our sons health needs is also a part of our burden, it was nice that the paper work required to receive help was not too time consuming and the approval process was very quick. We were pleasantly surprised how quick it was to receive help. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We are so grateful to this organization, and those who have generously donated.

MFFK is a wonderful organization! They have assisted my family numerous times with out of town medical travel. Without their continued support and dedication, it would not be possible for Tyler to continue his treatment. We will remain forever grateful to MFFK, it's volunteers, and donors for the wonderful gift they have provided to our family. As a parent of a chronically ill child, it is always comforting knowing that I can rely on MFFK. Not only is the service they provide fantastic, but the support you receive from their staff goes above and beyond any expectations. I've never met anyone from MFFK, however I feel that I have, just from speaking with them. Their caring, and kind words always help to brighten my day. In closing, MFFK is simply just that an absolute miracle. We are truly blessed to have found them, and are honored are to be a part of such a wonderful organization.

None. MFFK is by far the best organization that I've worked with. Just knowing that I can always count on them makes them perfect in my opinion.
