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.

We want to thank Miracles Flights, for their great support for my daughter Adriana to provide us the flight Tikets for their treatment of Leukemia, in such difficult times to have people like you is very helpful, it is my prayer that God continues to use them to bless to other families in need because travel is very expensive and even more so with the pain that one carries due to the illness of our daughter, we love you, thank you for all your work and dedication God reward and bless you, many hugs even if we do not know them we already have them in our hearts!

Miracle flights flew my husband, myself and our baby to the specialty hospital where she needed a major reconstruction surgery. We can't thank Miracle Flights enough for making this surgery possible. I also appreciate that they have kindly offered to take us back for any follow-ups that she should need. That may make the difference to being able to get follow-up care with a specialist that she needs for her complicated case.

Our family recently found out that our son suffers from a very rare type of tumor. After various medical consults it was determined that the best medical care for his condition would be at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Ohio where they have 20 years experience treating this very rare condition with excellent results. Miracle flights has enabled both my husband and I to accompany our son without worrying about how we would pay for three tickets to Ohio from California every 3 months. Because of Miracle Flights we can focus on the best treatment for our son instead of how to come up with the funds to get to Ohio. It has also allowed my husband and I to be together to support our son during each surgery which would have been very difficult if paying out of pocket. We are very grateful for the generosity of strangers in our lives.
