Cancer Patients’ Unknown Battle
Imagine this scenario. You or a loved one has cancer. A new, promising treatment is available. However, the best hospital to give this treatment is too far away. You have to fly hundreds or even thousands of miles. Long-distance travel will strain your budget. The battle just got more hostile. Worse, many don’t know about your critical need.
This is the reality for many individuals. They often turn to the American Cancer Society for help. When a cancer patient needs assistance, the American Cancer Society often refers them to Mercy Medical Angels. Mercy Medical Angels arranges free transportation. This way, patients can access the best care available.
Mercy Medical Angels provides free transportation to medical care for those who can’t afford the cost of long-distance travel. One way we accomplish our mission is through partnerships with commercial airlines. These airlines help the American Cancer Society through fundraising efforts, allowing for research and treatments.
Aside from the visible fundraising, there’s another life-saving partnership. As stated before, cancer patients don’t always have the means to access distant treatment. That’s where we come in. There’s a program where frequent flier miles donated through Delta go to the American Cancer Society. From there, the miles go to Mercy Medical Angels. The miles allow us to secure medical flights for those who need it the most.
You Can Help
We can’t do our good work alone. If patients are flying at no cost, someone has to cover it. You can help. One easy way is to donate your frequent flier miles through Delta Airlines. Here’s how:
- 2. Choose American Cancer Society
- 3. Log in to your Skymiles Delta account
- 4. Confirm donation
