CANCER TREATMENT CENTERS OF AMERICA SUPPORTS ANGEL FLIGHT EAST GALA & PATIENTS IN NEED OF AIR TRANSIT
FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 2015 – 6:30 P.M to 10:00 p.m.
Blue Bell, PA—Angel Flight East (AFE) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the community by facilitating free air transportation to children and adults in need of medical treatment far from home. AFE and Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Eastern Regional Medical Center have had a strong partnership over the past several years. To continue their support of AFE and the patients they serve, CTCA will sponsor the 7th Annual On Angels’ Wings Gala for the fourth year in a row.
CTCA is a national network of hospitals offering a comprehensive, fully integrated approach to cancer treatment and serves patients from all 50 states at facilities located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. Known for delivering the Mother Standard® of care and Patient Empowerment Medicine®, CTCA provides patients with information about cancer and their treatment options so they can control their treatment decisions.
“AFE and CTCA have relied on each other for years to support our mutual patients,” says AFE President Adam D. Zucker, Esq. “We’re extremely pleased that our organizations continue to collaborate to help our patients and are thrilled to receive such generous support from CTCA.”
Over the past four years, AFE has scheduled a total of 333 missions for 27 CTCA patients from 11 different states, covering a cumulative distance of over 73,000 miles. The percentage of AFE’s missions involving cancer patients grew steadily during this time, and currently stands at 50 percent.
The “On Angels’ Wings Gala” — an AFE banquet that will honor its pilots on Friday, April 17, 2015 at Meadowlands Country Club in Blue Bell, PA — reaffirms the organizations’ relationship. The contribution will be applied to flight coordination and educational outreach, serving medically distressed patients and families in the organizations’ mutually supported geographic areas.
