i love miracle flights there such an amazing company to provide the services that they offer you. this day and age it is so hard to find people who actually care enough to help. this company was perfect and i love them and i will back them up 100% because they are great and i love them for helping me the way they did. i have a one year old daughter who has to fly from st. louis missouri to boston ma every month to recieve medicine that only boston can provide. i use miracle flights everytime they are so great.

My son has Legg Perthes Disease and was diagnosed in 2004 at the age of 4. He has had three doctors and many therapy sessions over the years previous to 2009. In 2009, he woke up one morning and literally, fell out of bed, because he could not walk. Our previous doctors said there was nothing they could do for him until he was a teenager. That was four years away.

I could not stand to see my son in pain and not walking if there was something we could do. I went on the internet and found a doctor in Baltimore, MD who could help him. We live in Kansas, so it was not an easy decsion to make. We paid for several flights ourselves until we found Miracle Flights. They have been such a blessing and so easy to work with. We continue to go in debt with medical bills for two of our three sons, and with Miracle Flights' assistance, we will not have to add airplane flights to our cost. What a blessing they have been to us and our family.

My mother-in-law lives in California and needed to have emergency treatment for Multiple Myeloma in Little Rock, Arkansas. I called Miracle Flight and explained her financial hardship, and they pulled out all the stops to make sure that she made it to her appointment. I was even given a personal cell phone number to call after hours, so they could be certain she made it safely. Everyone was courteous, professional and sensitive to our needs. My mother-in-law is now receiving her treatment and is currently awaiting her return home next month, all thanks to Miracle Flight. We are extremely grateful for their compassion; without the help of Miracle Flight we would have never made it to Arkansas and the outcome could have been grim. Thank you Miracle Flight, you really save lives.

My 10 year boy was born with a very rare medical and life threatning medical case called Venous Malformation , which required him travelling to different hospitals and inot different states. Due to my son's illness my husband was the only person working. Which made it very hard affording all the travelling expensses all the time espicially the flight tickets for three pepole. Miracle Flights help in a great deal I appreciate everything they did for us. It really gave us a big push to continure caring for my son. Thank you again very much.

This is a wonderful organization who has provided my daughter the opportunity to continue to see one of the top specialists in the world for her complicated medical condition. The flights have been provided at no cost, other than the application fee. They were fast, friendly, and compassionate! The flight schedule was emailed to me on the same day that all of the forms were received.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

A template (Word doc) for the doctors to complete for the form letter that goes on their letterhead. Also, to allow a signed document to be scanned and emailed rather than requiring a fax for those of us who don't have easy access to a fax. Also, way out in the future, coordinate with the Ronald McDonald houses and shuttles or car rentals for a total trip package.

My daughter has a rare condition called Arnold-Chiari Malformation with complicating factors. For this reason, she sees a special pediatric neurosurgeon in Iowa. We live in Memphis. I am a divorced mother of two children and not working as I care for them both. To conserve in costs, I have formerly driven to these appointments which take about 16 hours each way. This is very difficult to do alone both for me and my daughter. On the first trip, I was so exhausted, that I fell asleep behind the wheel momentarily on the return trip. I decided from then on to not try to stretch the trip from 3 to 5 days so that I could stop at a hotel on the way up and on the way back. Also, I have an old car that is having a lot of problems. Finding this service was a Godsend and made the trip so much better for me and my daughter. The trip is safer and shorter. We would have not been able to afford it. So, we thank all of you for helping us in our time of need. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Miracle Flights for Kids is an amazing organization.They were kind, and quick in returning our phone calls. Rebecca Boyce was really accomodating to our needs. I felt like they had my child's best interests at heart.

By God's grace the tumor was removed,however he needed to see his neurosurgeon and get follow-up MRI's every three months. We live in SC and his neurosurgeon is in TN. Miracle Flights for Kids purchased our plane tickets so he was able to continue to see his neurosurgeon in TN.

My daughter was diagnosed with a rare, incurable disease in September of 2009 - and the three pediatric rheumatologists that actually knew how to manage this disease were hundreds (if not thousands) of miles away from us. We scrimped together enough for the first few visits to fly from our home state of Arizona to Chicago to see THE top doc, but by the fourth visit, our savings was depleted, our family and friends had helped as much as they could and we had come to the realization that if we didn't find help, our daughter would not be able to continue to receive the life saving treatment she so desperately needed. And then a fellow JDM mom mentioned Miracle Flights for Kids. The application process was easy and straightforward, the people who run this organization are kind and I am not exaggerating when I say, we owe them EVERYTHING. I don't even want to think about where we would be without their help. I have joked that I would walk to Chicago with my daughter strapped to my back if that's what I needed to do. Thank God for MFFK, I don't have to do that :)

My name is Katia. I am a 32 years old mother of 2 with Medulloblastoma, a cancerous brain tumor. I have been fighting this since February of 2008. I had 2 brain surgeries, radiation, and chemo. I was cancer free for 1year and a month. Then it was back in April of 2010. My doctor decided to do a bone marrow transplant, so I did that too. I first had another brain surgery, 1 treatment of radiation, and then the transplant. I came out of the hospital after transplant on September 9th, 2010. I had an MRI on January 6th, 2011 and everything was clear. I went back on April 21st for my second MRI thinking everything would be fine. I brought my daughter with me because it was spring break, and it was her 10th birthday. I though we would spend the rest of the day in Boston. The news weren't good. The tumor was all over my brain now. I was hoping for another brain surgery, but it was now inoperable. My neuro-oncologist told me that in his opinion I had fewer than 6months to live. I felt terrible. My daughter was terribly sad, but I promised her that I would fight until the end, and that I wouldn't give up. The only option for my survival was to participate in a Medical Trial out of Pittsburgh, PA. The problem was that not having worked for the past almost 3 1/2 years; I clearly couldn't afford flying weekly to get treatment as it was required by the study. I decided to search on the internet, I also contacted my councilor at Dana Farber, and I came across this organization called Miracle Flights. This was exactly what I needed. They would provide me with every flight I needed to get care. If it wasn't for Miracle Flights For Kids I couldn't continue to fight. I am grateful that I was given another chance to life. Thank you.
Sincerely, Katia

My daughter has a very rare bone condition, and the doctor who knows how to treat her condition is on the other side of the country. In the past 3 and a half years, she has had 5 surgeries and several other follow up visits, including rehabilitation. Without Miracle Flights, this would not have been possible. They provide an invaluable service- and we have always been treated with kindness, respect, and professionalism. We can't say enough great things about this organization- or thank them enough!!

My 16 y/o son, who has a severe medical condition that could effect his future independency need specalized testing in Indanapolis, services not avaliable in NM, our family could not afford the round trip flight to get hime to the best medical care avaliable in the US. Miracle flights for kids
was a life saver for my son, and the outcome of the extensive testing was
successful in Indanapolis Univ Hospital. Miracle flight staff arranged the
round trip flight efficently without problems at the airline check in. We were stressed at first about the long flight, but once we arrived at the airport and checked status of correctiness of round trip flight info and our stress level was relieved when we saw we had the correct info on the flight info. We had no problem with the round trip flight.
Thank you so very much Miracle Flights, from our hearts.
