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.

Miracle Flights was awesome. They helped arrange multiple flights for our family to be able to take our daughter out of state to get the best possible medical treatment that she could receive. We would not have been able to afford the extensive amount of travel we needed without Miracle Flights helping us. Everyone we worked with was friendly and went out of their way to help us. When we arrived to the airport everything went smoothly each time (3 times using Miracle Flights). They made something very stressful seem quite easy and we are very thankful for their help.

I am a cancer patient who has to travel from Western Montana to Seattle Washington every three weeks for therapy. I am a single parent with an elderly parent to care for as well. I have been making this journey on a regular basis since February of 2017. After thinking that all my cancer was gone, in November of 2017 a scan found that I had recurring metastatic cancer that had spread to my chest. I was given the option of immuno therapy to help my body find the cancer cells and help heal myself. There really were no other options. I have been unable to work a regular job for several months now. All savings are depleted and I had begun to wonder if I would be able to continue my healing journey.
Then I found out about Miracle Flights. They have helped me to keep going by providing travel assistance. This has taken so much pressure off that I am able to plan for future trips without having so much stress. They are pleasant and professional as well as kind and compassionate.
I recently had another scan. The therapy is working. I will have to continue for a while to see what the next scan shows. I am so grateful for the help that they have provided for me. There aren't enough words to explain just what this help has meant to me.
All I can say is, THANK YOU MIRACLE FLIGHTS!!!!!!

Miracle Flights specialists are very efficient and helpful. Wonderful customer service! I don't know if we could've had the same great medical care if we hadn't received free flights.

Miracle Flights helped us get our son, Luke, to The Children’s Hospital of Colorado for treatment he needed for his disease, Eosinophilic Esophagitis. There are no specialists for this disease in our town and our son needs to be seen 2-3 times a year. The expenses of these trips can take a toll! We are thankful that Miracle Flights lightened the load of the trip and gave us one less thing to worry about.
