Connecting patients with the care they need
PALS has now grown to over 23,000 flights for over 2,300 families and an astounding 5.4 million miles flown. Quite an accomplishment for a free air travel organization a little over 10 years old. Over the years and over many missions, we’re honored and humbled to hear how many lives we’ve been able to impact. Often times when a person is diagnosed with a life-changing illness, the care they need is inaccessible by car due to the repeat trips and length of each trip. When these families and individuals reach out to PALS, our team of volunteer pilots, flight coordinators and mission assistants go to work to make free travel to a medical facility or hospital possible. The stories we hear and our patients send us are all the reward we need. Below are a few of those stories.
