The nation´s medical flight charity Miracle Flights has reported a total of 685 free flights provided in November to critically ill children and adults in need of medical care far from home, the company said.
This marks a significant increase over the November 2016 total of 478 flights and sets a new record as the highest November flight count in the organization´s 32-year history.
Established in 1985, the Las Vegas–based national nonprofit works to close the gap between patient and doctor and increase access to medical care for those with rare and life-threatening conditions. Commercial air travel is arranged at no cost to families and is not restrictive to age or diagnosis, nor is there a limit to the number of medical flights the organization will provide to a patient in need.
Miracle Flights is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free medical air transportation to children and adults via commercial airlines throughout the United States. With over three decades of service to families in need, Miracle Flights has coordinated more than 113,000 flights and counting. For more information about Miracle Flights, visit miracleflights.org.
