MERCY MEDICAL AIRLIFT
September 5, 2013

Mercy Medical has been kind enough to fly us across country for critical surgeries many times. We have several rare diseases in all our children and myself. We have been in the O.R. in NY 23 times with a brilliant surgeon. Our children are doing so much better. They have a future.

We know at any time when we need help we can pick up the phone. Financially this medical circus we live in is catastrophic, but they say to us not to worry, "We will get you there....." What can we say to re-pay that?????? It's our CHILDREN...... no words are good enough.

If you can please donate so other children have a happy future.

Warmest Regards~

Give Kids The World
June 16, 2012

We have been to Give Kids the World twice for two of our children who received Make-A-Wises. It is heaven on earth for everyone in the family for different reasons. It's so much fun for the kids with ice cream available all the time even for breakfast!! The pools are beautiful and Dino-Putt is really fun. I could write all day about it. For parents it is the joy of watching children who have had to do so much in their short lives just watch them have FUN without having to worry about the cost. It is very unreal while you're there. It's so magical and lovely. Cannot say enough. Words just aren't good enough.

Miracle Flights for Kids
June 16, 2012

Our family has been blessed by Miracle Flights many, many times for our children with rare disorders. We already wrote a review for them. THIS one is for me. Many do not know they also aid adults and I too have the rare disorders my children do and require care across country. As usual everything was done efficiently and perfectly with friendly communication. Those gals in the office are wonderful and we now consider them a part of our medical family because we could not take care of everything without them. THANK YOU Miracle Flights For Kids !!

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE OF LONG ISLAND INC
May 11, 2012

I would need much too much space to tell you how wonderful RMHLI is!! We have multiple children with serious medical problems and have to fly across country for care (with another great non-profit Miracle Flights for Kids) and stay at RMHLI every time. It is our home away from home and is beautiful, fun, has wonderful employees and volunteers and they welcome us with hugs and smiles every time we return!! The kids love going there and it takes some of the stress away from their surgeries and recovery. The house provides so many wonderful activities the kids feel they are on vacation. It is awesome for parents because it provides necessities like laundry facilities, kitchens, and the comfort and support of other families who share the same difficulties. Please donate if you are blessed enough to be able to!

Miracle Flights for Kids
February 21, 2012

Miracle Flights has come through again for our family. We just returned from a trip across country to a see a specialist for an incurable disease for our daughter and we leave again through the gracious help from Miracle Flights as I need spine and brain surgery in NYC. They are always there for us, always ready to help ....we couldn't run this medical 3 ring circus without them. The gals who run everything are so quick, efficient and help me get things done on time. THANK YOU AGAIN Miracle Flights for Kids !!!

Review from Guidestar
Miracle Flights for Kids
July 29, 2011

We just returned from our 16th trip across country for medical care. We have several children with rare diseases/disorders and must travel for care. Without Miracle Flights For Kids we could not get the care our kids need. I don't say that lightly....I MEAN we could NOT get the critical care needed because flights are so expensive.

They are very special even among the charities who do this work because they allow both parents to fly and I have disabilities and need my husband's help. Plus, of course, our children need both of us while in the hospital and post-surgery.

We have been the recipients of their genersoity many, many times and they always accomodate us and care about the kids. Everytime they schedule a flight for us to go home from a trip, Becky always says,"You know we're here when you need us". It is emotional just writing that. To know people care who have never even met us is so special.

The Great!

Review from Guidestar
Miracle Flights for Kids
June 24, 2010

Miracle Flights is an amzing charity. We have several children with rare disorders/diseases that require extensive travel for testing and surgeries. Just the medical mumbo-jumbo is overwhelming financially but the travel puts it all over the top. It would be impossible for us to get the care our children need 3,000 miles from home without Miracle Flights. It is not however, only the free flights. The gal in charge has been so kind and understanding. Calling us when we found out we had to change plans, when one of our children needed brain surgery right after another had just had it. She told us, not to panic, that when we needed to get back to NYC for the next surgery, "We'll be here when you need us, I don't want you to have to think about this on top of everything else". Of course I was in tears that she cared enough to say that. The combination of their material help coupled with kindness is so helpful when you live in the medical world. The flights were easy, to the airports we requested and with great airlines. We cannot say enough about this charity....our children could NOT get care if it were not for their generosity. Warm Regards, Ed and Lisa Currall WA, USA
