Miracle flights has helped so much over the past few years. My daughters specialist is in West Palm Beach, Florida and we live in Colorado. We have to see her doctor at least 2 times a year and when they are doing a procedure it is upwards of 6-8 times a year. It is a great relief to know that MFFKs is there to help get us back and forth.

Miracle Flights has been nothing but a blessing to us. My daughter was born with one leg shorter than the other. We're having her bone legthened in Florida but we live in Colorado. Over the past 10 years, Miracle Flights has helped us more than I could imagine. Without them, my daughter wouldn't be almost done with this long surgical process!

My son has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. When traveling from Texas to Cincinnati for better medical care, Miracle Flights helped us! They made the application easy, if I had any questions, I could call or email and usually get a response the same day!

Without Miracle Flights, we wouldn't have the money to fly and our van cannot go that far as it's pretty old. Miracle Flights made going to Cincinnati to better doctors, with better standards of care possible!

Thank you so much Miracle Flights for kids. You made a very stressful time a lot less stressful.
My daughter had to go to Boston, from Atlanta for a doctor visit. Having the flights taken care of was such a huge relief.
Thank you for being there when we needed you.

Miracle Flights was incredible in helping my son and I travel to an important appointment that was not near our home. The application was easy, the service was great. They even arranged with the airline to have someone help us at every transfer! We have used Miracle Flights a few times and feel they are an invaluable asset to children needing medical care that requires travel. Thanks so much, Miracle Flights!

My two year old son was diagnosed with an eye eye tumor at 18 months old which started to grow at 32 months. He was getting seen by a doctor in Houston, TX and they were trying to rule out other conditions and weren't sure if it was retinoblastoma. After a lot of research I ended up finding the Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia, PA and scheduled an appointment. I was left to find a way to pay for the flight. I checked numerous organizations and Miracle Flights was able to book our flight after submitting very easy paperwork from us and the doctors. While we were at Wills Eye they diagnosed my son with retinoblastoma and wanted to begin chemo right away, which meant we had to change our flight so I was worried. One simple call to miracle flights and a letter from our doctor changed that right away as Miracle Flights conveniently changed our flight to accommodate his treatment. I am so grateful that Miracle flights was there for us in seeking a second opinion to ensure that our son could be in the hands of the best doctors.

Words cannot describe the gracious hospitality we are given. My little boy needed a transplant last year and it took me 6 months to figure out how to pay for our flight to Chicago. Needless to say, I wasn't aware of Miracle Flights back then. After $6000.00 spent on flights, I was blessed with the link to Miracle Flights. We have used their service 3 times now. We sadly had 2 experiences with other companies that literally left us stranded in Chicago once and at home once when my son was scheduled at the hospital. Miracle Flights provide us with flights on commercial airlines, we preboard due to exposure and the flight attendants are so loving.

I have 5 children and am doing this by myself. I also have another child with medical ailments as well as myself. We have a genetic disorder that hasn't been diagnosed in 3 years of testing. I have so much stress from medical and financial, but Miracle Flights helps me get my son across the country as needed and with minimal paperwork. They are a Miracle and have given My son life!

I am eternally grateful for this organization made of love. My little boy would never have made it back to see his transplant surgeon without them.

My son has been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and travels to Cincinnati Children's Hospital for his care. Miracle Flights for Kids consistently gets us to where we need to go. This travel assistance lifts some of the expense burden of traveling for medical care. We are emmensely grateful.

I don't know what my husband and I would do without the help of Miracle Flights since he is battling stage IV lung cancer and needs to fly from Florida to NYC once a month for a special treatment that is not available here in Florida. Our resources are stretched thin because of expensive treatments and without Miracle Flights the added expense of the flights would be very difficult. We are very grateful for the job Miracle Flights is doing. They are wonderful to work with too, doing everything in their power to help. Thank you very much! May-Louise and John in Florida.

My son has many diagnoses but there is one special diagnoses he has that requires us to travel to New York. He has Russell-Silver and the only specialist is in New York. Miracle flights has provided several flights to see this specialist that has saved my sons life due to complications from this syndrome. Thank you Miracle flights for all the help you have provided my son.
