My son Riley, 15, has dermatomyositis, a rare, uncurable form of muscular dystrophy. He flies out to Chicago to see the world's expert for his disease, Dr. Lauren Pachman, at Children's Memorial Hospital, 3-4x year. Miracle Flights has been fantastic support for us to get him there, as we are of small financial means. Because we are able to get to this specialist, Riley is improving all the time, and with luck, will go into full remission - we're on the right path for that to happen. Becky has always been extremely helpful to us, and we appreciate her being able to get us good flights out to Chicago and back. Thank you, thank you, thank you Miracle Flights!

Scarlett was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in February of this year. She was 20 months old. What lead us to finding the tumor was a condition called Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS) which causes her to tremor, shake, fall, not sleep, and have speech problems. Without proper treatment it can lead to brain damage. The tumor was removed but the OMS remianed. Miracle Flights helped Scarlett to see a specialist who focuses on OMS and to get Scarlett on the right treatment protocall. We thank you so much for helping our little Scarlett!

I am the mother of 4 children. Two of my 4 childen were born disabled. Miracle Flights came through for me 14 years ago when my oldest disabled daughter needed brain surgery in Michigan and I live in Las Vegas. They were willing to fly us as much as we needed to go at no charge. This was truly a gift to our family and our daughter.

Well 10 years ago our second daughter was born. She was born with an orthopedic condtion that requires a lot of casting and surgeries. Unfortunately, the specialists for her condition are not local. Jessica has had 10 surgeries in her 10 years. All of her surgeries require casts and numerous follow-up visits. Miracle Flights for Kids has flown us from Las Vegas to Seattle, Washington over 35 times. They have always been there for us. Without their help, we would not have been able to see the surgeons that have helped my daughter get where she is today. She is a very happy little girl that attends normal classes. She can walk and run thanks to the doctors and miracle flights generosity. I will forever be grateful for what they have done for Jessica and my family.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization because they have flown me and my daughter over 35 times in the past 10 years. They have always made sure that we get to our appointments no matter how many we have. They never question the distance or the frequency.

The only thing I would change would be the amount of paperwork that is required from the doctors. Some of the doctor's are more efficient and cooperative than others in signing and writing letters. That is the only difficult thing I can see in going through the flight process. Sometimes it is stressful. I know it is necessary but some doctors just don't have the time.

Miracle Flights has lived up to it's name for our daughter. At 10 weeks of age, she was diagnosed with craniosynostosis, specifically, premature closure of the sutures in her skull. The specialist she needed to see was in Dallas, Texas, all the way across the country from our home in Michigan. Surgery was scheduled for October 19, 2010 but we had no idea how we were going to be able to afford traveling there. After reviewing our application, Miracle Flights contacted us and told us they would pay for our flights to get Mikenna to Texas for her surgery. Not only did they pay for everything, they made all the arrangments and provided us with all the details. All we had to do was show up at the airport and get on the plane. We will never forget how Miracle Flights made Mikenna's surgery possible, and helped our family during this uncertain time. Thank you for helping us Miracle Flights.

Our son has a rare condition, rare enough that the treatment locally has been less than great. In our research for a doctor, we found the best hospital to take him to for treatment. The problem, that hospital is in PA and we are in CA. All I want is for my son to walk one day and getting him to PA to meet with the amazing orthopedist there who specializes in him condition might be the only way that dream may ever happen. Thanks to Miracle Flights, the burden of cross-country flying has been lifted for our family. Since expenses add up quickly, this charity has made a huge difference for our family in being able to seek the best health care out there.

In Sept of 2010, we found out that our daughter needed Brain surgery. With her serious conditions and disease, she needed the best Dr's and hospital in the Country. We were referred to Boston Children’s hospital; however we lived in AZ and with this short time frame and tight on money and the urgency of this surgery, we were referred to Miracle Flights. With in 7 days Rebecca and her team had us fill out all the required paper work. We did not give Miracle flights much notice; however they were able to get us to the Boston Children’s hospital for her surgery. What a relief to have a company that could offer such a miracle. I was just layed off from work and things seemed grime the need for the surgery was weighing on us heavily with this extreme stress, Rebecca team at Miracle flights went way above the call of duty and made things happen. They made life seem so important and that all children mattered... The team set the accommodations up, with no issues or our need to doing anything but get to the hospital. My daughter required 5 different Brain surgeries in the last 7 weeks and Miracle flight has accommodate all our needs to re schedule all the flights .in the most professional and gracious way. Our heart can not thank this service enough, and what they offer is truely a miracle of life. This organization at Miracle flight is something that has given us hope that we will make back home for the holidays. And that is a Miracle… Gege our Daughter is doing amazing.
This would never happen if not for this service.

Our deepest thanks the Gann’s

My sister, Kelly, was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. The only hope for her to beat, or atleast have a chance to fight the cancer was by flying her to Zion, Illinois. Our parents had already spent thousands of dollars flying Kelly and a companion to Cancer Treatment Centers of America, and they were having a hard time coming up with more money to purchase the flights and logging.

Miricale Flight's for Kids was our answer to saving my sisters life, and giving her the hope she needed to keep fighting. Without the savings of muliple flights that Miracle Flight's for Kids paid for Kelly would not have gotten to return to Cancer Treatment Centers of America. We were so blessed by the quick responce every time Kelly needed a flight.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the way of my sister receiving free flights to another state so that she could continue her battle against cancer. Without this nonprofit help my sister would have lost her fight.

Not change anything, the required paper work and amount of days required to give notice before future flights are all deemed necessary.

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

Knowing that lives are saved because Miracle Flight's for Kids exist is more than amazing. What would a mom or dad do if they couldn't afford to save their childs life because they couldn't afford to pay for a flight to give their child the doctor that they needed.

Miracle Flights for Kids have been a God send for us. My Grandson travels from Oklahoma to Pittsburgh, Penn. every three weeks for six months for treatment for Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Cancer. We will travel every 6 weeks for the next two years. We have made nine trips in all so far and Miracle Flights for kids have assisted us with a few of these trips. The flights are very costly and it is certainly a blessing to have been able to use Miracle Flights. The staff at Miracle Flights have been very helpful each and every time we were able to use them.

My baby was born with the cranio-facial deformity Metopic Craniosynostosis with moderate trigonalcephaly. At 3 months old he had surgery to remove the prematurely fused bone in the middle of his forehead. We did not have a doctor qualified in our area who could perform his surgery so we had to travel from North Carolina to Texas for him to receive the endoscopic treatment we wanted him to have. This treatment requires the initial surgery with several return visits for new cranial bands to reshape the triangular forehead his condition left him with and to maintain the space the surgery created to allow his brain room to grown. With the high costs of the medical treatment, the return trips to San Antonio were more than we could afford. Thank the Lord for Miracle Flights for Kids. I have no idea how we would have been able to make these appointments since they are on such short notice because my son is out growing the helmets faster than they can make them it seems. Rebecca is phenomenal. She is so helpful and kind. It is really nice to talk to such caring people during such and stressful time. It really does make the situation a little easier when you have friendly people helping you. I can't thank Miracle Flights for Kids enough for helping our family. God Bless them.

I am so thankful for Miracle Flights! They are truly a life saver!! My son was born with a cleft lip and palate. Because of Miracle Flights we are able to fly to his doctors in Dallas. Without Miracle Flights we would not be able to get him the quality care that he needs.
