The Miracle Flights for Kids Mission
Thanks to the financial help provided by Miracle Flights for Kids, many children get help from medical experts and they receive second opinions that often save their lives. Just as importantly, their families receive hope and a level of peace of mind that may make their life easier to deal with. All any family in such a position wants to know is that they’re beautiful child may have a chance to live a healthier longer life.
The people who are helped by Miracle Flights for Kids call those who work with the organization Miracle Makers because that’s exactly how they feel. The organization exists for a single purpose; to bring hope to underserved families who find out the medical help their child needs may be available hundreds or thousands of miles away, but who are too cash-strapped to be able to afford a ticket on an airline to get there. The Miracle Makers work in a compassionate way because that is why they do what they do in the first place.
The fact of the matter is, Miracle Flights for Kids will fly any child patient who qualifies, as well as both parents or two guardians to wherever the treatment the child needs is located. That includes medical treatment, a second opinion or any follow-up care they may need. Eligibility for flight assistance only requires a local doctor’s referral, a confirmation of the appointment and income verification. The goal of Miracle Flights for Kids is to ensure all flight requests are fulfilled for any underserved family that needs the help they offer. So far, that means they have provided more than 100,000 flights to sick children and their families, covering more than 55 million miles. A great many families have received the treatment their children needed and that is a great record.
