To put it as simply as possible, Miracle Flights for Kids serves as an outreach program for the families of sick children, to assist those who need medical help that is not available locally find the means to fly to wherever the medical care, second opinion or anything else they need. While they solicit the help of Americans nationwide to help with this mission and they try hard to spread the word about their services, they do so with good reason. Their fervent hope is that no child who needs medical care isn’t blocked from getting it by the family’s ability to pay for a flight to wherever they need to go.
The good folks who work with Miracle Flights for Kids like what they do and they do it well. The organization has received accolades for their services, including many awards as top-rated non-profit, as well as humanitarian awards and even a couple of lifetime achievement awards. Part of the reason may be that they’re filling a very urgent need by a great many families. As many as 30 million Americans have been struck by a serious illness that cuts short their life or negatively affects it in some way, and about half of those Americans are children. Many of those kids are expected to die before they even reach kindergarten and all of them deserve a chance to prove that wrong.
Since they were established in 1985, Miracle Flights for Kids has grown into one of the most necessary nonprofit health and welfare flight organization in the country. Over three decades, they have provided the financial assistance needed to provide medical flights to seriously ill children who need them to get the life-altering or life-saving medical care they need.
