Miracles for Kids
November 1, 2013

Miracles for Kids allowed my daughter and granddaughter seek the best possible cancer treatment available. We were out of options, financing, and insurance had stopped my granddaughter's active live saving critical treatment mid stream. Both sides of our family are long standing Orange County residents. Miracle Kids allow my daughter to chose the best possible care and be around family that could support them in other ways. Thanks for helping to save my granddaughter's life and to let my daughter sleep at night knowing she did not have to choose sub standard care. You are a Miracle.

Last year AFW flew my daughter and granddaughter to CA from AZ several time for life saving treatment. This year they continue to help children with cancer in AZ get to CA for care. They planes provide an additional bonus in that they are private planes vs. commercial. You are not afraid to fly AFW with a child who has a compromised immune system. Thanks to the entire staff for servicing the state of AZ. Teri Dornhecker Director Daisy's Eye Cancer Fund

My granddaughter is a RB survivor. Being on the board allows me to make a difference in our new world & be able to provide a better future for her when she becomes an adult. I work on her future, while my daughter takes care of today's needs. I don't step on her toes, and get to be a part in it all just the same.

I can't say enough wonderful things about this organization. My granddaughter has Retinoblastoma. Eye cancer in both eyes. She is only 7 months old and doing multi-state travel for treatment. AFW has been taking her and my daughter to and from treatment monthly and it has been a blessing. Money as everyone with cancer knows is tight. To have this service available is a God sent. The best part is with chemo your immune system is compromised and with AFW being private planes we do not have to put Evie on a commercial flight with the risk of others being Ill. They are so generous and helpful. They don't even let my daughter carry her luggage. They treat us like we are the ones doing them a favor, not the other way around. Thank you so much for serving our community.

I am very excited about the newly founded USA DECF Chapter. It will be a valuable resource now and even more in future years. They are taking time and care to lay out the proper foundation for the coming years. They strive to bring awareness and support to families suffering from RB. Being a grandparent of a survivor it was very difficult in the beginning to find national resources. I feel with the opening of this chapter we/I have been heard. I can't wait to see this organization grow and develop new ideas to manage the many complex issues related to this disease. Thank you and welcome USA DECF!
