Breaking Down Barriers with Miracle Flights for Kids

May 25, 2017

Since they began operations way back in 1985, Miracle Flights for Kids has risen to becoming one of the most important charitable organizations in the country. Long established as the most important nonprofit health and welfare flight organization in the country, the organization has provided more than 100,000 flights to sick children and their families, covering more than 55 million miles. That represents a lot of financial assistance to families who can’t otherwise afford the cost of airfare to get to wherever the necessary medical attention is.

With the help of Miracle Flights for Children, a great many sick children get help from medical experts and second opinions that often save lives and bring healing. Not only that, but their families also receive hope that they're beloved child may love a healthier, longer life. No family with a sick child needs to watch their child go without healthcare because the care they need is 1500 miles away. The fine people at Miracle Flights for Kids will fly any patient who qualifies, plus two parents or guardians, to wherever they need to receive treatment, follow-up care or to get a second opinion. Eligibility for the program requires nothing more than a local doctor's referral, a confirmation of the appointment and income verification.

As much as they have done so far, however, Miracle Flights for Kids has an outreach program that asks for the help of people all over the United States. They want to spread the word about their services because they want to help many more sick kids get the help they need. It’s no wonder Miracle Flights for Kids has won a number of awards for their services, including many awards as top-rated non-profit, as well as humanitarian awards and even a couple of lifetime achievement awards.
