I want to thank Miracle Flights for everything thing they have done for me and my family and most importantly my duaghter. Me and my family live in Ontario California we are a family of four now but unfortunately our life did a complete turnaround. My duaghter was born a healthy baby with no health problems at all, but unfortunately a stomach flu changed her whole life and ours. My daughter was diagnosed with OMS (Opsoclonus Myoclonus syndrome) which is something really rare that i have never heard of. We did not have a cure or treatment available for my daughter from the doctors here in California, all the doctors could say is this problem your daughter is having will go away with time and it didnt. As parents we looked and looked online trying to get some answers and find someone that could help our daughter get better and be a normal child. We found a doctor in Springfield Illonois that had our answers but the problem was how are we going to get there? We did not have any funds to fly us out there, so now as a parent you have to brace ourselves and figure out who can help? We knew that a possible cure was in Springfield but there was no way of getting there untill we found Miracle Flights on the web. I called Miracle Flights and they were really supportive with every question I had for them. They sent me a packet that had a step by step on what they needed to help me and most importantly to help our sick daughter. I reached out to my daughters doctors, faxed all the paperwork the packet requested and in a day i received the call that changed my daughters lifes and everbodies around her. Miracle Flights called me and told me that we are approved to fly to Springfield Me and my wife and my daughter, there has never been any more better news than to hear Miracle Flights are able to help us. I cant never stop thanking Miracle Flights for all they have done for me and my family and wish that anybody donating to this wonderful organization can realize that its not only families they are helping but they are helping the innocent lives of our babies/children throughout all United States. My daughter found her doctor and is going thru treatment and can now live a normal life thanks to the help of Miracle Flights and her doctor.Thank you soo much for listening to my story and thanks for everything you have done for us and thanks everybody that made it possible for my daughter.

I have a rare anemia and the main hospital is in NY that treats this condition. I was able to get flights booked through this organization with the help of the great staff! They coordinated all details even when there was a bit of a time crunch. I feel fortunate for Miracle Flights for Kids really put everything together for my trip. Thank You!

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.
