LAS VEGAS, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Miracle Flights, the nation's leading medical flight charity, coordinated 603 flights for the month of July 2016. In total, the nonprofit has coordinated over 102,000 flights and flown over 57 million miles in their impressive 30 yr. history.
In July alone, Miracle Flights flew patients to 19 states from 14 different countries.
Since 1985, the Las Vegas based nonprofit has helped patients with rare and life-threatening medical conditions gain access to specialized, out-of-state medical care through commercial flights. Plane tickets are provided at no cost to the families and as many times as necessary.
Mark E. Brown, CEO of Miracle Flights, said, "I'm very pleased with July's flight count—these aren't just numbers; they're lives that have been changed for the better. While we help as many people as we can, we know that there are still many we don't reach. If you, or someone you know is in desperate need of out-of-state medical care, please don't hesitate to contact us."
