We are thrilled to announce that The Alexion Charitable Foundation (ACF) recently awarded Patient Airlift Services (PALS) a grant of $100K to support our mission of providing free medical flights to the community of people living with Rare Diseases.
The Alexion Charitable Foundation’s grant to PALS will support our critical missions which include many moving parts. From the plane and pilot, to the mission coordinators and ground crew. It takes a considerable amount of resources to organize a medical flight for people who need to travel to a hospital or medical facility to receive treatment for a Rare Disease or other medical issues. This grant helps PALS to provide these services all free of charge to those people who need it most.
