Making Lives Better: Miracle Flights for Kids

June 25, 2017

The overarching mission of Miracle Flights for Kids is to make sure that as many children as possible get to wherever the best medical treatment is, even if that care is far away. They 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. Virtually all flight requests they receive are fulfilled for any underserved families who needs their help to get their sick children a flight to wherever the best treatment is.

Over the years, Miracle Flights for Kids has provided more than 100,000 flights to sick children and their families, covering more than 55 million miles. That is because they believe strongly that no family should have to watch their kid get sicker because the family doesn’t have the means to pay for a flight to wherever the medical treatment they need is located. All kids and families have the right to help their child get better.
