Miracle Flights for Kids said it finished September with 495 life-saving flights.
The nation´s leading health and welfare flight organization enables children with rare and life-threatening medical conditions to gain access to specialized, out-of-state medical care through commercial flights.
“We´re thrilled to have helped so many families this past month,” said Miracle Flights Founder and National President, Ann McGee. “We know we´ve made a difference in so many lives, but we still have miles to go. We won´t rest until every child has access to the care they need.”
Miracle Flights has also been selected as one of 12 finalists in the Lightspeed Aviation Foundation´s Pilots Choice Awards Grant program. Aviation-related charities are chosen to compete in an online poll, with the winner receiving a USD10,000 grant.
