Like many patients before they found free flights through PALS SkyHope, they may have searched something like, “do airlines give discounts for cancer patients?” The answers that one comes across may vary, however, airlines such as JetBlue donate vouchers to charities that offer free transportation alternatives for cancer patients and those suffering from other diseases.
PALS SkyHope is honored to partner with JetBlue for the second year in a row!
Jetblue has generously donated much needed commercial vouchers that help guarantee our passengers get to the care they need. In 2022, PALS used airline vouchers to fly patients and their companions, most of whom suffer from illnesses such as cancer, genetic disorders and various rare diseases. One such passenger was six-year-old Leah, who is continuously being treated for multiple liver conditions. With the help of JetBlue, we were able to fly her to life-saving care from her family’s home in Florida, to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
PALS SkyHope believes that everyone deserves the best access to care and because of JetBlue we were able to provide even more flights with the resources generously gifted. As PALS continues to grow its reach, we need all of the commercial flight support we can get for our patients and veterans!
Thank you JetBlue, for your continuous support and partnership!
