Review for ANGEL FLIGHT SOARS INC, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have 6 kids and 2 are medically fragile. Both have rare diseases and need to be treated by doctors far away from home. The toll on our family life and finances is immense. AngelFlight comes to the rescue by getting us to our doctors quickly (instead of us driving many hours) and without cost to us. This charity is a PRICELESS resource for us...not to mention fantastic to work with!

Review for APFED, Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was suffering terribly with a mysterious malady that no doctor seemed to be able to nail down. We were misdiagnosed 7 times by as many different specialists. Every time we saw a new doctor, my son would get a different title, and a different therapy. Nothing ever worked. I was desperate to help him feel better, and spent a good bit of time online, researching as much as I could from the little I knew. I eventually found the APFED website, and a detailed description of what my son's major symptoms were. Over time, I would continually come back to the APFED site to confirm my suspicions. I even made contact with someone in the disease community, who helped me tremendously by phone and email. They turned out to be a representative of APFED! My son has since been diagnosed with the condition I suspected, and APFED has continued to be a huge resource for us as we navigate the course of his disease and treatment.
