Through Miracle Flights for Kids, Children Get Well

May 25, 2017

Over the last 30 years, the "Miracle Makers" at Miracle Flights for Kids have provided the financial assistance needed by many families to provide medical flights to seriously ill children who need life-altering or life-saving medical care. Because of their willingness to help, a great many children get help from medical experts and second opinions than would have otherwise. The people who work with Miracle Flights for Kids are called Miracle Makers because that is how the parents and children feel about them. This highly regarded organization exists for one single purpose; to make sure children who need specialized medical care that is not available nearby are able to get the care and other life-supporting options they need, even if they have to travel hundreds or thousands of miles to get to it.

These fine people at Miracle Flights for Kids tend to work in a compassionate way because they know that the only way they can continue to operate is by engendering trust in everyone concerned. Obviously, the young patients and their families have to trust them, and they get that. However, they also have to make sure the communities they serve and with the people who donate to make these flights possible also trust them, so they can continue to operate.

They do a lot for a lot of children and their families. Miracle Flights for Kids will fly any patient who qualifies and two parents or guardians to wherever they need to receive treatment, follow-up care or to get a second opinion. To be eligible for the program only requires a local doctor's referral, a confirmation of the appointment and income verification. They strive to see that all flight requests are fulfilled for any underserved families who needs the help, which is why they have managed to provide sick kids and their families with more than 100,000 flights, covering 55 million miles. That's a great record and why they have received many awards over the years.
