Miracle Flights for Kids
August 24, 2012

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.
