Angel Airline Samaritans mission is to ensure that no cancer patient is denied access to distant specialized medical evaluation, diagnosis or treatment for lack of a means of long-distance commercial airline transportation.
Angel Airline Samaritans (AAS) facilitates no-cost or reduced rate commercial airline tickets for needy cancer patients and their families.
Angel Airline Samaritans uses commercial airlines to provide charitable cancer patient travel.
Patients use the charitable medical air transportation system to travel to and from distant specialized medical evaluations, diagnosis or treatments. Many patients and their families make multiple trips. Patients are asked to verify financial need and the patient’s primary physician will be asked to sign a form indicating that the travel is for essential and necessary medical care.
Nationally, scores of cancer patients travel every month through these charitable or reduced-rate means – making it possible for them to get the best possible specialized care and the best chance for life. AAS helps patients traveling to medical institutions all over the United States.
Patients no longer need turn down the option for specialized care at some distant medical facility due to the lack of a financial means to travel for the treatments.
Angel Airline Samaritans is a program of Mercy Medical Angels utilizing charitable airline patient ticket programs to fly patients to specialized medical care.
