$21,000 Check to Support Flights for Cancer Patients

The Corporate Angel Network program recognizes corporate flight  departments that fly cancer patients to  needed medical treatment.  A $21,000 check was presented to Corporate Angel  Network (CAN) during the 2013 NBAA Annual Convention, in a ceremony hosted by program cosponsor Phillips 66.

The donation represents proceeds generated from the Corporate Angel Award program that recognizes companies and their  flight departments for donating seats on business aircraft to transport cancer patients needing specialized treatment.

Typically about 3,000 free flights are arranged each year by CAN working with business aviation flight departments.

All told, more than 40,000 cancer patients have flown on flights arranged by CAN since 1981.

This year’s Corporate Angel Award recipients include the flight departments for

Colleen Corporation,

Ball Corporation,
