Being a parent of a child who has been miss diagnosed for the past 4yrs, miracle flight for kids has given us the chance to go to Mayo clinic Rochester, Mn. I know they will be there if we need help again. What a wonderful blessing and resource for families with sick kids to get treatment they couldnt access otherwise.

We have to make trips across the country to Cincinnati Children's Hospital 3-4 times a year. Miracle flights has helped us many times with our flights. They have been very supportive, professional and prompt every time they have helped us. We could not have made these critical trips without there help.

Our 8 year old son is thriving today because of the assistance of Miracle Flights for Kids. Our son has a rare and difficult disease to treat called Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EE). A little over three years ago our local doctors/specialists informed us that they would not be able to help our son and that we had to take him to Cincinnati Ohio to the Cincinnati Center of Eosinophilic Disorder (CCED) at Cincinnati Children’s hospital for treatment and management of his rare disorder. Miracle Flights for Kids provided us the airline tickets that made it possible for us to take our son to the medical specialists that we so desperately needed. Our son’s medical condition had deteriorated so severely that we had to remove all food intake and the specialists placed him on medical formula via a gastrointestinal feeding tube. He is living and thriving today because of these drastic measures taken by the CCED. Over the past 3 years we have started to slowly introduce food back into his diet but this requires us to travel back to Cincinnati every 3 to 4 months for treatment and management of his EE. The financial impact of the medical bills alone has made it impossible for our family to purchase airline tickets without the help of Miracle Flights for Kids. Our son is living and thriving today because Miracle Flights for Kids has made our travels possible. We are forever grateful and blessed that Miracle Flights for Kids continues to help us travel to Cincinnati for required medical treatment for our son.

We need to travel from Portland Oregon to Cincinnati Ohio for treatment for our six year old son who has Eosinophilic esophagitis. Miracle flights has provided tickets for our last two trips. They have been very prompt and professional in the services they provide. We needed a morning flight on the way to Ohio and an afternoon flight on the way back which they fulfilled. It has been a blessing for our family to work with MIracle Flights for Kids.

We have a young child with a rare condition which requires us to fly to Cincinnati Children's hospital for treatment and care every three to four months. We are very thankful that miracle flights for kids provided us with airline tickets to travel to Cincinnati so that our child could get the care needed. Miracle flights for kids staff was caring, helpful and prompt as we worked out our travel needs with them. Our trip details and connections all went smoothly. We hope they can help us again in the near future. Thank you.

My son has a rare genetic condition and we fly to Shriners Hospital in Philadelphia with the help of Miracle Flights. We have used their services several times already and unfortunately for my son will need to use it many more. It does make the burden much less having them help us to get there and back! I don't know how we would do it otherwise! THANK YOU MIRACLE FLIGHTS!!

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.
