Introduction: Miracle Flights: free medically-related air travel for ill patients, including CF
Miracle Flights recently reached out to tell us about their wonderful organization and explain the details of their service, which we have compiled into a blog article to share on our website with our CF community.
Miracle Flights is a nonprofit organization that provides free commercial airline tickets to seriously ill, low income patients for care in the United States, either through local or international flights. The organization has already helped transport patients with Cystic Fibrosis for medical care and could benefit more people in our community.
There is no specific severity or medical criteria to be met, however they require a Medical Referral Certification letter, which should be completed by the patient’s local doctor and a Medical Appointment Confirmation letter to be completed by the treating doctor. As all flights take place on commercial airlines, the patient must be medically fit to be safely transported on commercial aircraft.

How can the Cody Dieruf Benefit Foundation thank you all enough for all that our community and surrounding areas do for us. We are in awe of all your support and love. We will always be thankful that 11 years ago, our community came to our aid when we lost our daughter, Cody to Cystic Fibrosis. Many many thanks to all of you.
Did you know?
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease. People with CF have inherited two copies of the defective CF gene — one copy from each parent. Both parents must have at least one copy of the defective gene. Cody was diagnosed at the age of 9. Today, it is mandatory that all babies born be tested for Cystic Fibrosis.
