All over the US, children are in need of healthcare that is outside of their local area. The costs to travel to the doctors that provide the specialized care that these children need can be enormous, especially coupled with their already ever rising medical bills. This national need for children from low income families to have a way to reach specialized medical care had to find a solution simply because these flights can be expensive for families already suffering financially from medical bills and that is why Miracle Flights for Kids was founded. Miracle Flights for Kids’ dream is to be able to help children and families to reach that specialized medical care facility, no matter how far from home, without suffering from the debilitating costs so that they can focus on helping their kids get better. Removing the barrier of travel, these families now have access to healthcare that can dramatically improve their quality of life.
Thousands of donors and volunteers from across the nation have worked together to make Ann McGee’s dream, founder of Miracle Flights for Kids, a reality. Due to these efforts and diligence, they have quickly become the nation’s leading nonprofit health and welfare flight organization. To date, Miracle Flights for Kids has coordinated more than 97,000 flights and 53 million miles of medical air travel in order to help families in need.
