Miracle Flights for Kids helped us out so much when my son had to make his sixth trip to New York for surgery. As a mom of a one income family this organization provided a much needed service. I can't say thank you enough . It was easy and the people were very helpful and friendly.

My son Tyler, age 8years old, was diagnosed with Legg-Calves Perthes Disease in his right hip in 2009. After many doctor visits and potential surgeries to help maintain his hip we found doctor Shawn Standard in Baltimore, Maryland @ Sinai Hospital who offered a different approach to helping Tyler maintain & repair his hip & femur without have to cut/shorten the bones. The only problem is we live in Portland, Oregon. Through a contact from the Perthes Support Group I discovered Miracle Flights...and this truly was a miracle! The staff was so patient and helpful with me concerning paperwork and getting the right information. We were able to fly to Baltimore, get Tyler's fixator removed, receive physical therapy, and come home to Portland with no problems at all on Southwest Airlines! Tyler even got to hang out with the pilot ;-) We are forever Thankful for the blessing Miracle Flights for Kids gave our Son!

I wanted to enroll my daughter in a medical study but it was in California and we live in Oregon. Miracle Flights to the rescue! They provided us with flights for both years we've been in the study and they are the only way we could participate. I tell everyone I know how easy they are to work with and what a great service they provide. Two thumbs up for this charity providing such a vital role in the world of special needs!

Streamline the process and only have one person process paperwork. I had several different people ask me for the same information.

my son was diagnosed with tourettes at 4 and we were in a state that knows very little of this. We could not finacialy afford to fly and stay and our car would not have made a 12 hour trip to Mayo. MFFK was able to get us there and there was no problems. years later my son was in a car wreck and his tourettes got worsr and the Mayo was able to do an experimental surgery to help him and they were there for us again. While we were at the Mayo back home my dad was getting worse from brin cancer and they were willing to help us rearrange tickets to gt back if we needed They really care and are there for kids and parents so parents have one less thing to worry about. They believe everyone deserves care no matter where. We appreciate you

Can't thank miracle flights enough. I have a very rare type of cancer and there are only a few doctors in the world that specialize in it, so I need to travel to MD Anderson 2 or more times per year. I am a single Mom on disability and would not be able to afford this treatment had it not been for Miracle Medical flights. What a WONDERFUL SERVICE!

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!
