The problem is actually quite acute. There are more sick kids out there than many people think. In fact, there may be as many as 30 million Americans who are afflicted with some sort of rare or complicated disease that either shortens or alters their life in some way and half of them are children. Quite a few of them may not live long enough to see their first day of school. For the people at Miracle Flights for Kids, there is no reason why every one of those kids should not have access to all of the medical help they need. Yet, one of the key factors holding some children back from getting what they need is money.

Specifically, a great many sick children need medical help that is hundreds or even thousands of miles away, and their family hasn’t the means to afford airfare, so they can fly to where they need to go. That is why Miracle Flights for Kids was created in 1985 and it’s why they have been counted among the most important charities in the country, especially for families with sick children.
