Miracle Flights has been such a blessing to our family. We have two little boys born with Clubfoot. We were able to see a wonderful physician named Dr. Dobbs in St. Louis. Many doctors are attempting to treat Clubfoot but unfortunately they are causing more issues. We live in Arkansas so we just drove to see Dobbs for his care. Last year he relocated to West Palm Beach Florida. We knew financially we wouldn’t be able to go see him for treatment, knowing we would have to go every few weeks for casting. A wonderful friend told me about Miracle Flights! The application was easy to fill out and once we were approved they called to book the flights. I cried talking to them the first time because I was so grateful. So far we have been able to get my son the surgery he needed and we fly back soon for physical therapy. We have 4 children and with Covid-19 my hours have been low at work so for this amazing organization to take the burden off us has been the biggest blessing!! We are forever grateful!

My name is Krissy Wright and I have a condition called avm. I also have multiple Vm’s. They are on my right face, tongue, lip, and neck. I have had 24 procedures on my face so far and more to go. Miracle flights has been a complete savior for me. I am a single mom who lives in Alaska and the cost to fly to the lower 48 is just too much for me to take on and if it wasn’t for miracle flights there is no way I would be able to make it down to Colorado. The staff who work there are the sweetest people who bend over backwards to makes sure you are taken care of.I HIGHLY recommend miracle flights to anyone who is in need. And I also think if you are able to donate to miracle flights they are always needing the extra help. I know if I had a chance to I would donate to them in a heartbeat. They help so many people be able to get the help they need to have a chance at an as normal life as they can. Miracle fights you are my Angels!!

Miracle Flights was a miracle for us! With my husband needing surgery in San Diego, and us living in South Carolina, the cost of air fair was more than we could manage. I did some research online and found Miracle Flights. Their application process was so easy and the people at Miracle Flights were with us each step of the way. They kept us up to date on flight changes and itineraries. We were even able to fly home early and Miracle Flights help us make that change and got us back home to our family. Wonderful experience and what a gift this company is!! Thank you Miracle Flights for giving us a miracle!!!

Miracle Flights is seriously THE BEST. Without Miracle Flights we wouldn’t be able to get the treatment for our daughter that she needs.

In an extremely stressful time trying to schedule and wonder how I am going to pay for a short notice flight to go for training and bring my daughters service dog home was completely alleviated by the people at Miracle Flights. They walked me through every step of the application process and were so quick in handling the booking of our flights and taking that part of the stress off of my plate leaves me struggling to find the words to express my gratitude. When you live day to day with a child that experiences challenges related to their disabilities, getting a hand up and support without judgement can be a few and far between opportunity.
I cannot thank Miracle Flights enough for their help and support!

Hi. My name is Stephanie and I welcomed a preemie baby girl named Carly in 2020. Along with being preemie, she has bilateral clubfoot. She started casting almost immediately after coming home from the nicu. After over twenty casts and tenotomies on both feet, her feet were still not where they needed to be. I shared her pictures in an online support group and immediately got many responses of other parents suggesting I take her to go see Dr. Dobbs in West Palm Beach. I am a full time teacher and have four children at home so this was not an easy task to accomplish. Another parent reached out to me about Miracle Flights and suggested I applied with them. I promise you, this nonprofit organization is nothing short of a miracle. They have allowed us to travel from Texas to Florida without having to worry about the financial burden. They are so kind and patient and help me every step of the way. Our family is forever grateful.

Miracle Flights helped us get our son the treatment he needed for life-threatening food allergies. The cost of treatment was so high that we weren’t sure we could afford it in addition to paying for flights, hotels, and car rentals every 3 months for his appointments. Every interaction with Miracle Flights has been above and beyond. Their members treat us with kindness and make it so easy to schedule our son’s flights. We are so thankful for Miracle Flights.

I was diagnosed with CTEPH (Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension) about 20 years ago and have lived with this condition using medications all this time. I live in Florida and where I live, the doctors here at the time they noticed all the clots throughout my lungs suggested I go to a teaching hospital. I ended up going to Tampa General, part of University of South Florida which is about a 2 hour drive from me. About a year ago, I noticed a change in my lungs and how I was feeling. I had a right heart catheter done and confirmed the pressures on the right heart were extremely elevated. With medication it could be managed, but ultimately, I would experience heart failure at some point down the road. My cardiologist suggested I go to one of a few hospitals that could possibly correct/alleviate my condition. His first suggestion was Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. With a couple of weeks of my visit with my cardiologist, Temple reached out to me and explained what would happen. They sent me a packet with all the information I needed which included information on companies that could help with lodging and transportation if needed. Temple actually highlighted Miracle Flights. I called them and asked what their criteria was for them to arrange travel. I had no idea what to expect or how it worked. The representative I spoke with was incredibly helpful and very nice. She explained how it worked and also said that what my income needed to be for me to qualify. When I herd this, I unfortunately my annual income exceeded their criteria and I understood this. She did say say that they had also changed some of their criteria due to the COVID19 outbreak. She would check and get back to me. Within a few days I was contacted by another representative and they had asked if I would share my story about me, my family and medical issue. I gladly shared this and the next day, they agreed to help me! I was ecstatic! They arranged my flights over the course of months. All I had to was fill out their application and they took care of the rest. Seamless! I still have more upcoming visits and they have said they would be with me throughout to get me back and forth to Philadelphia.
I am not sure what I would have done if they were not recommended to me. Even though my salary technically is higher than they usually allow, I earn an average salary, and they accepted me! I am extremely thankful for Miracle Flights for their kindness, helpfulness, and thoroughness!

Miracle Flights has been such a blessing in our lives. Our daughter has a rare genetic condition. We live in Arizona but her doctor is in Florida. We travel to see him at least twice a year and sometimes stay for extended treatment.

I cannot say enough good things about Miracle Flights! My daughter's specialist moved across the country, and we would not be able to continue care with him without Miracle Flights blessing our family. With their help, we were able to follow him and continue to receive the care she needs. We will always be extremely grateful for everything they do! They are an amazing group, who genuinely care and do everything they can to help.

We've been navigating Lily's life-threatening food allergies since she was just 11 months old. Lily's now 9 and has 9 ER-worthy anaphylactic reactions under her belt. You might say she's an expert by now! But who wants to be an expert at navigating a world of food that could potentially kill you? Certainly not us!

That's why we had to find a way for Lily to be treated for her food allergies at the Southern California Food Allergy Institute, problem was though, we live in Colorado. And that's where Miracle Flights comes in to the picture. Miracle Flights has stepped up and they have made it possible for us to take Lily to California to see the doctors she needs to see. Thanks to the support of Miracle Flights, we're on our way to saying goodbye to trips to the ER and instead we are saying hello to food freedom.

We are beyond grateful and can't wait for the day that Lily will be able to eat freely. Thank you Miracle Flights and thank you to all the donors that are helping to make our daughter's future as bright as it can be!

Miracle Flights helped my son get to and from Saint Louis, MO from Florida to see the best orthopedic surgeon in the country for clubfoot... my son’s feet were improperly corrected and made complex at home, the new doctor completely corrected him and continues to follow Donovan’s progress. They also covered trips to see other specialists in the quest for getting the best care for my son’s mystery issues he was struggling with. Every time we called for a flight it was like talking to family, I am very grateful for their service to many families.

I never knew a non-profit organization like Miracle Flights existed. Thankfully, our children have always been pretty healthy. But when our son (age 8) was given an opportunity to seek treatment for life-threatening food allergies over 1,000 miles from home, we were pointed in the direction of Miracle Flights. We have flown once with them, and may have needs in the future. Their staff have been so kind, helpful, and even joyful in their efforts to help us when we thought the costs of travel might make treatment impossible. We are so very thankful for Miracle Flights!!

Where would we be without MIracle Flights? The answer is simple: we would be in our local hospital in Chattanoog, TN, with inadequate healthcare. Miracle Flights has gone above and beyond for my family more than once. I actually have two daughters who have benefited from this amazing organization. In 2012, my older daughter needed to have a major operation that only the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN was daring enough to tackle. Thanks to Miracle Flights, we were able to travel mutliple times to Minnesota to receive the unheard of treatment in Tennessee. Fast forward to 2018, my younger daughter was treated at every facility and even in patient at more than one hopsital in the state of Tennessee. We were told that "nothing is wrong with her other than she is an attention seeker." Being a mom who has been through one medical anamoly, I knew to trust my instincts. Miracle Flights stepped up for my family again, but flying my second daughter to Cincinnati Children's Hospital more times than I can for multiple evaluations, surgeries and lengthy hospitalizations. Thanks to my motherly instincts and Miracle Flights, she is now the first child at Cincinnati Children's Hospital with a Gastric Stimulator which acts much like a pacemaker. We still have follow-up care in Cincinnati, and I am confident Miracle Flights will get us there! On a fun side note: becuase my daugher has flown so often, she is now working toward earning her on private pilot's license and plans to become a professional pilot after high school graduation in the spring of 2021.

Over a year ago, we were told that we had to make the decision to either remove my son's right eye or fly him from Kentucky To Arizona to pursue a more aggressive treatment of his Bilateral Retinoblastoma. Thanks to Miracle Flights, we have been able to make this trip every month without having the financial burden that such frequent flights would cause us. We know that our son could still loose his right eye to cancer but because of Miracle Flights he has access to the best team of doctors for his cancer which increases the chance of preserving his vision.

This organization Miracle Flights was a life saver for our family in 2019. We were hit with unplanned medical travel from Texas to Boston in both July and August to seek 2nd opinions which led to life changing surgery for our child who can only eat 1 food at the age of 3 years old. Since returning home from treatment we have made huge strides in his diet, Miracle Flights was instrumental in scheduling, changing dates, bumping up flights, and stayed in constant communication with us as needed throughout the process, front to back. Their team is friendly, compassionate, and really helped relieve the financial burden and stress that comes with medical travel. So thankful to have Miracle Flights on Team Sutton!

I am the mother of 4 children. Two of my 4 childen were born disabled. Miracle Flights came through for me 14 years ago when my oldest disabled daughter needed brain surgery in Michigan and I live in Las Vegas. They were willing to fly us as much as we needed to go at no charge. This was truly a gift to our family and our daughter.

Well 10 years ago our second daughter was born. She was born with an orthopedic condtion that requires a lot of casting and surgeries. Unfortunately, the specialists for her condition are not local. Jessica has had 10 surgeries in her 10 years. All of her surgeries require casts and numerous follow-up visits. Miracle Flights for Kids has flown us from Las Vegas to Seattle, Washington over 35 times. They have always been there for us. Without their help, we would not have been able to see the surgeons that have helped my daughter get where she is today. She is a very happy little girl that attends normal classes. She can walk and run thanks to the doctors and miracle flights generosity. I will forever be grateful for what they have done for Jessica and my family.

I’m a single mother to a 3 year old who just turned 4 on St Patrick’s Day. Diagnosed with Williams Syndrome (WS) at age 1, my son had a difficult debut in life, health wise. His syndrome comes with physical and cognitive developmental delays that necessitate a clinical evaluation and suggestions from experts in patients with WS. One of the best WS clinics that most parents with WS children have recommended is the Boston Children’s Hospital Williams Syndrome Clinic.
I have always wanted to take my son there, but all the expenses related to our travel, our housing and food, were above our income, until I heard about Miracle Flights through the Williams Syndrome Association website. I decided to give them a call, and they were quick to guide me in assembling my application file and... our trip was booked. I’m particularly grateful for this opportunity because this clinical evaluation gave my son a chance to have his heart evaluated for Supra valvular aortic stenosis and pulmonary stenosis. The clinical evaluations also are going to help with coming up with definite and individually written IEP goals. The clinic is a lifelong follow up and I’m grateful that if needed, Miracle Flights will give my son the chance to continue his clinical evaluations.
I couldn’t be more happier. Thank you Miracle Flights.

Miracle Flights is helping us receive a cure for our sons life altering medical diagnosis. We were told that a cure was not available. After lots of research, we found Miller's Children's Hospital and Dr. Randhawa. We found hope for a cure but still needed to find a way to travel across the country every 5 to 8 weeks for over a year to receive it. Miracle Flights is our answered prayer! Without them and Dr. Randhawa our son wouldn't be able to attend Kindergarten, or school in general, go to birthday parties, summer camps or college. Now he will be free to live a normal healthy life. My husband and I have three young boys and are teachers in the public school system. With medical bills and the cost of missing work so much, paying for so many flights isn't an option. Miracle Flights is our cure for distance.

Thank you Miracle Flights for the bottom of our hearts! You are truly an amazing charity that deserves to be supported!

From the moment I stepped into the airport i felt like royalty. they assisted me and my caregiver right away and got us to th front of the line so i didnt have to wait long. i have crohns disease and with frequent bathroom trips i didnt have to worry about losing my place in line. at each airport they always had a wheelchair waiting for me with smiles on their faces. the paperwork needed to be filled out was very detailed and needed to b exact. however i realize they needed to be precise. at firt my dr. office was not sure what they were doing but soon got the hang of filling out the forms. miracle flights helped me several times going to the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. things went well. i may need to go back again. but im not worried about the transportation because MIRACLEFLIGHTS has my back! thanks again!

Miracle Flights has been a blessing to our family. Their professionalism and ability to meet the needs we have greatly reduce our stress as a family. They have provided many flights for our daughter to be treated by specialists over 1,000 miles from our home.

Our family is very thankful for Miracle Flights! Evan has a rare disease that the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland is studying! We had the opportunity to fly from MN to Maryland to see this great team that is passionate about helping us to get better treatment and possibly a cure someday for our son. Currently Evan suffers from pain everyday and is usually very fatigued. His systemic juvenial idiopathic arthritis can attack any of his tissues, organs or joints at anytime. He uses biologics, chemo and more just to try to keep his disease at bay. Thanks to Miracle Flights we now have an addition to #EvansArmy care team! I almost cried when they told me that they will follow Evan and help us to get him what he needs to live a better quality of life. SJIA has been an incredibly dangerous and frightening struggle because this disease is so misunderstood. It is potentially terminal and a thief of childhood. We will be going back to NIH at some point. I am eternally grateful for Miracle Flights to have opened this door for us.

My son was diagnosed with Dystonia in 2014. We have been to numerous doctors and were so lucky to have found John's Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. We live in Montana and so getting to Baltimore has been a challenge. We were so very lucky to have found Miracle Flights, the many trips we have done back and forth would have been next to impossible if it wasn't for the help of Miracle Flights they truly are angels. We can't thank those who donate there time and money to help these children get the medical needs they so desperately need. My son has been through so much in the past 2 years with going through Deep Brain Surgery(DBS) and all the follow ups he is such an amazing young man. He always has a positive attitude. Miracle Flights has been there to help and has taken a lot of the financial stress off of us. They are truly a blessing!!❤❤

My daughter has an undiagnosed medical condition. Thanks to Miracle Flights we were able to Fly to Maryland and have her evaluated by the Doctors at the National Institute of Health. It would have been so difficult to drive her there from Florida. We will be forever grateful for this opportunity.
