Mercy Medical Angels
October 11, 2013

About a year ago I had a medical emergency and was diagnosed with a rare cancer that strikes one in a million people. I was in very,very poor condition after surgery, and needed to go from Florida to Duke University in NC for another surgery and chemotherapy. I no longer had income, didn't qualify for any assistance,was living alone and on the opposite side of the country from family, and my entire world was turned upside down. there was no way I could drive myself, as I could hardly walk or sit at times. Mercy Medical Airlift provided me a flight for the treatment I needed. It also gave me hope in a very dark time when I had no options. The staff was very efficient and helpful to my sister (who initiated the request on my behalf), and was very kind to me, and was very understanding of the scheduling needs and my situation. I cannot express how grateful I was for this service.
My surgeons often remark that my determination and mental attitude were a huge part of my recovery. ( I now have the best prognosis possible!) I would not have had that if I had not had the life changing support of MMA. Every time that I tell my tale I suggest GiveBackAmerica.com as a way to contribute to MMA with purchases. I am a walking miracle that will forever be grateful for my MMA flight.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None..... but is there a way that if I do fly commercially that I can just have my miles put in the MMA miles fund? I never fly enough to get enough miles to use on any trips for myself and would like to see them used somehow.
