On February 14, 2015, Wings of Hope held it’s 13th annual “A Night for Miracles Dinner & Auction, with 100% of the proceeds from the event going directly to fund-ing our MAT Program. The MAT program helps people like Justin and Melissa who were our honored guests for the evening.
Justin was born without both arms and a leg. Wings of Hope flies him on a regular basis from his hometown in Wichita, KS to St. Louis where he is undergoing long term treatment at Shiners hospital. They have elongated the bones in both arms and his leg. He has recently been fitted with a prosthetic leg. He is a veteran flier with Wings of Hope having flown over 75 times since he was born.
Melissa had to have her right leg amputated due to complications following heart failure while playing volleyball with friends. She heard about Wings of Hope through a family friend and has flown over a dozen times with us. She has a ‘never give up’ attitude and is making a full recovery.
Thank you to everyone who supported the event and came out to support our MAT Program that evening!
