For Sharon, she needed to travel from Jacksonville to New York for treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Her first few trips were grueling and expensive. Obviously it the cost and burden of a commercial flight is enough, but add to that, lodging and meals in NYC and she quickly realized it was going to be unsustainable.
Patient AirLift Services is a nonprofit that arranges free flights for medical patients requiring medical diagnosis, treatment or follow-up who cannot afford or are unable to fly commercially.
Although the pilots and the use of their plane are on a volunteer basis, mission coordination, patient outreach and other related costs are not. Your donation helps continue our mission and connect patients with the free medical flights they need to obtain critical care.
PALS also arranges volunteer flights for family members of patients as compassionate missions, to ensure patients have support when they are away from home for long periods. PALS is proud to assist military personnel and their families with free flights to aid in the recovery and rehabilitation processes for our wounded veterans.
