We adopted a 15 year old girl with limb deformities from Ukraine 2 years ago. We knew she had shortened arms, but did not know that her leg was also shorter (about 8"). When we brought her home to the Pacific Northwest, we found out that her leg was correctable by surgery. Unfortunately for us, the two surgeons who would do such a significant procedure were on the East Coast of the US. Once we had our appointment with MD, Miracle Flights was able to get us a flight to and from our requested cities in just over 10 business days! The flights went smoothly and we traveled to and from the surgery just fine. Miracle Flights really helped us make our daughter's dream come closer to fruition because we were able to travel to get her leg fixed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daughter's surgery. Very nicely handled on their part, it was easy to work with them.

Dalia was diagnosed with retinoblastoma (a rare cancer in the eye) in September of 2008. Since then, we have been traveling from New Mexico to New York for her treatment and follow-up, treatment which was only available in New York. The treatment clinical trial Dalia is in saved her eye, and her vision. In the first year we were flying once a month. Now we go for follow up every three months. Miracle Flights has been there all along, supporting us to be sure Dalia could be treated 2000 miles away from home.

Our son needed to see a specialist in California (we are near Chicago) under short notice. The appointment was scheduled only two weeks in advance. I contacted Miracle Flights for Kids, and they were EXCELLENT to work with! Even under such short notice, they were able to arrange our flights without any hassles. Vanessa was helpful and kind, reassuring me that MFFK would be able to process all of our paperwork in time for our appointment. The tickets arrived just as Rebecca (the Director) promised they would. We would not have been able to make this expensive trip without the assistance of Miracle Flights for Kids! Our son received the necessary treatment because you made our trip possible; Thanks MFFK!

Miracle Flights for Kids has been a Godsend for my family. My son has a growth disorder that requires special treatment from a specialist in New York City. We travel every three months from Ohio to New York City in order to see his doctor and to get my son the best treatment he needs and deserves. It is a huge financial struggle for us just to pay the hotel costs, along with taxi and food while we are there. Miracle Flights has offered us the airline tickets with us giving a small donation that makes this a little more manageable. I am so thankful that this organization exists. Without them, I am afraid my son would not be doing as well as he is doing. Local physicians no little to nothing about my son's growth disorder, therefore, they do not know how to treat him. We have been making this trip for 7 years now, and Miracle Flights has helped us with almost all of our trips. This is a wonderful organization and the staff is friendly and helpful.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My life. They have helped my son get the treatment he needs by being able to see his specialist.

We have a year old daughter, Sophia. She has a very rare lung disease called Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD). We live in Ramsey, MN and our closest treatment site is St. Louis, MO. For the past 3 years Miracle Flights has flown us to St. Louis. Without Miracle Flights, it would be extremely exensive to travel to St. Louis. With all our other medical bills piling up, Miracle Flights is truly a miracle for us! We can't say enough wonderful things about them, we have never had any issues and always have the best flights and everyone is so accomodating to us.

I have a son who was born with a very rare diesease called venous malformation. Me as a mother and him started the travelling jurney for 9 years sofar,we travelled to New York, Boston, and Chicago. With all the medical expensess that we pay it was very hard to continue travilling add to that that my husband is a salesman with what happend with the economy lately our income went down big time. I did not know what to do untill I heard about miricale flights I was a big help and releave for our problem because everytime we travelled they helped us with tow flighing tickets and the money for ticket covered out other expecnes like hotel and food. I thank God everyday and appreciate the help we get in this country because if my son was sick in another place I do not think that there was going to be any kind of help to begin with. So thank you mericale flight your help did make a real different and saved my family.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have utilized Miracle Flights for Kids for quite some time. I believe they have provided me and my daughter with about 25 flights to get her to her medical appointments from TX to MD and now to Chicago. Allorah has a very rare auto-immune disease and her doctors have been spread across the USA. Without their help, I wouldnt financially be able to get her the world class care she needs and deserves. MFFK has been literally a life saving organization for my daughter! The staff is amazing and you can tell that they love their job. They take pride in their work from the very beginning all the way until you get back home!!! We have been truly blessed with MFFK!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how they have helped me get my sick daughter to her medical appointments from here in NM to Houston, TX, Batimore, MD and now to Chicago, IL. They have given me an opportunity to give my little girl the very best medical care that she deserves.

amazing. They are so courteous and go out of their way to make you feel supported and taken care of.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach out to so many families that need the help to get their sick child to the best medical professional or facility to provide treatment for them.

My daughter requires medical care out of state. There is no way we would be able to afford to fly to her medical center the usual once a month trips sometimes even more. The staff at Miracle Flights for Kids have always been extremely helpful in assisting our family in traveling from Sylvania Ohio to Dallas Texas. We love all they have done to help us and realize that without their support, and caring their is no way our daughter would receive the care she needs. Her condition requires a specialist who is familiar as she is a one in a million kid, who has had over 80 procedures. Miracle Flights staff has helped us to know exactly what they need in order for us to get the assistance necessary. When we are worried they reassure us to help us to focus on taking care of our daughter. They are a wonderful organization. We feel blessed to have them in our lives.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They show their caring by asking how our daughter is and giving us numbers to contact them if any problems should arise with the flight.

Ways to make it better...

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

Although I realize they need paperwork to initiate a flight, it is not easy to get all the medical personnel to deal with filling out the forms needed.I wish that a representative could contact the office to explain their needs.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The continuous support they have provided to my daughter and myself.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Always friendly

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help more people receive the medical care they desperately need.

Ways to make it better...

The miracle flights staff would educate medical office on their services and why they need forms filled out in order to expedite the forms that are required to get assistance.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting money from donors in order to serve as many people as possible.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I know for sure we would not be able to provide the care that is needed for our daughter without the assistance of Miracle Flights for Kids.

My son has a medical condition that requires us to travel from Oklahoma City to Chicago for treatment. As you can imagine it is very expensive to do several times a year but Miracle Flights for Kids helps make it possible. I don't know what we would do without them!!
