The Bingham Family – ‘Against All Odds’

Many of our Angel Flight West families are facing extraordinary circumstances in their daily lives. Our goal is to  ease some of the burden that comes along with serious medical needs by providing free transportation for families in need of a little help. Today, we’d like to share with you the story of the Bingham Family.

The five Bingham children all have a serious heart disease called Cardiomyopathy. Two of the Binghams, including longtime AFW passenger Sierra, have had heart transplants and another sibling has a pacemaker because of this disease. The Binghams’ story was featured as part of a series of NBC’s “Dateline” editions airing in June 2013 about people in remarkable situations. Included below is a link to the episode, which tells the family’s story and showcases their incredible optimism.
