Being a single mother of a child who requires surgery every 6 months in San Antonio, TX, finding Miracle Flights for Kids has truly been a God Send!! For the past 4 1/2 years, I had been paying out of pocket for transportation expenses, whether it was by flying or by making the 17+ hour drive to Texas. This program is making it possible for me to save money (finally) to take my children to Disney World, my daughter's wish!! The paperwork may seem over-whelming, but once it is done, it is definitely too easy. And the airline that they booked us on was awesome!! Thank you Miracle Flights for Kids, making this experience a very easy and less stressful time. I've already spoken to other parents with the Titanium Rib Program that are in the same situation and referred this program to them. Cierra and I look forward to going through this organization again!

The Wednesday before Christmas, my wife and I ended up at Arnold Palmer Hospital with Jorden because he was having severe stomach cramps. At first it appeared that Jorden had a blocked colon, but he had unfortunately been diagnosed with desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor, or DSRCT. DSRCT is
a very rare cancer and the best place for treatment and surgery is/was in Houston TX. We live in Orlando, FL and have to fly back and forth 5 times in the past 9 months. If it wasn't for Miracle Flights we do not know how we could of been able to make it out there so many times. We have had nothing but a great experience with Miracle Flights they have assisted us with 4 trips. The planning and flight experience have been seamless. Jorden has returned home after 73 days in Houston, where he underwent surgery to remove 278 tumors from his abdominal area and 20 rounds of radiation. Jorden is doing extremely well and is now conducting outpatient chemo here in Orlando at Arnold Palmer. Thank you Miracle Flights for providing us with exceptional service and for truly caring.

My name is Jillian. My son Easton is two years old. He was born with Arthrogryposis type (Amyoplasia). Arthrogryposis is a rare muscle and joint disorder. He was effected in all four limbs .We were told our son would never walk. We simply couldn't take that for an answer. Then we found the doctors in Philadelphia who changed our lives! The hard part is we live in California! We were informed about Miracle Flights. If it wasn't for Miracle Flights I don't know if this would be possible. They are truly a blessing to my family. They are the reason we can see these amazing doctors and give our little buddy a chance at walking. Thank you :) -The Munguia Family

My name is Jillian and I'm from southern California and my son Easton was born with a rare disorder called Arthrogryposis. Weve recently found some amazing doctors in Philladelphia. But that's a pretty long way from home. We travel 2 to 3 times a year and Miracle Flights has been a God send. I don't know how we could afford it without them. They've blessed my family with such kindness. We are more than greatful for the wonderful things you have done for us and all the other families you help.
Sincerely,
The Munguia Family

My daughter had a lung transplant at Duke in North Carolins. We return often for check ups and tests. The doctors at Duke are wonderful and due to Miracle Flights my daughter can be monitorwd by the Duke physicians. Flights from Michigan to Raleigh are very expensive. We are Very grateful to the staff of Miracle Flights. They are organized, efficient and compassionate. They are truly a Miracle.

This service has been a blessing for our family. We have traveled from NC to MA for the past 5 years and were having to pay for it ourselves. It became a financial hardship for us. When we heard about Miracle Flights we knew it was a gift from GOD. Because of this service we are able to continue with the care my son needs in Boston, MA. Everyone that I have had the pleasure of talking to at Miracle Flights have been so helpful in making these trips happen for us. I commend the staff and all of the wonderful donators for reaching out and helping families like ours.

Miracle flights provides a service to families that can not be expressed with words! Without their services, my daughter would not be able to see her orthopedic specialist due to the cost associated with traveling that far from home every 6 months. I am so thankful to have found this organization and am so grateful to Becky and Vanessa for making it a pleasant experience every time we request a flight! They go above and beyond what would be expected of them:) Thank you Miracle Flights for all you do!!

My son has uncontrolled seizures and is autistic. Each year we need to travel to the mayo clinic in Minnesota for his follow-up care. We live in Wyoming. It is a 15 hour drive. And gas is expensive as you know. Miracle Flights for kids has flown my son and I to Minnesota to make sure he could get to his needed appointment on time. Free fare for him and a minimal charge for me. Thanks to this organization was able to see his doctor and get his medications.

I am a four time cancer survivor. The last time I had cancer it had spread to my lungs. I spent almost four years on chemotherapy, and was then told that the cancer was growing, even on chemotherapy. My doctor was convinced my only hope was to cut the cancer out. I tried many surgeons in Florida but was told that I was too weak for such as a surgery. Miracle Flight flew me to Boston, Mass. where a surgeon agreed to do the surgery, against all odds. It is now a year and one half later and the cancer has now returned to my lungs. I am now undergoing another cancer fight now which is to result in a left breast removal but I will win over cancer again. Miracle Flight is a miracle to those of us with little hope. Moms and dads raise children, and kids live long lives beacuse of Miracle Flight.

I am alive because of Miracle Flight and the help that your organization has given me. i am a single mother and a four time cancer survivor. Last year you flew me to Boston to have cancer cut from my lung. This is an operation that two different surgeons in my area said was not feasable because I was so weak and had gone through four years of chemotherapy to reduce the tumor but that did not work. A surgeon in Boston cut out my tumor and I am about to undergo another operation to remove my other breast but I am alive. You help people around the United States to get necessary treatment that is not available in their area. Specialized areas of the country, like Boston because of Dana Farber Cancer Center, offer treatment that gives us the ability to live another day to raise children and watch them grow up. We owe you our lives. Thank you.

10 months ago my son, Benjamin, was diagnosed with a rare and devastating seizure disorder called Infantile Spasms. He was 13 months old. On the bad days, he would suffer thousands of seizures that would come in clusters lasting up to an hour. He was very sick. After failing 6 drugs and a specialized diet (Ketogenic) to treat medication resistent epilepsy, we realized we were running out of options. Ben's development had stopped and with every seizure we were risking more and more brain damage. We were praying for a miracle. We were referred to a Pediatric Neurologist at the Children's Hospital of Michigan. He is known as "Dr. Rockstar" amongst the families he has served. The only problem was - we live in Frederick, MD and Michigan is a 9 hour drive. Too long for a sick baby. A mom in my on-line support group reccomended I apply for a miracle flight to get us to Michigan. I did, we were accepted and flew to Dr. Rockstar! I will never be able to put into words how much Miracle Flights helped my family. We are now under the care of a top notch doctor and for the first time in a very long tome, we have hope!
