ANGEL FLIGHT

The Moreno Valley Cancer Support Group will have a presentation about the Angel Flight program this Friday, July 11. According to Angel Flight’s website:

Angel Flight South Central encourages America’s general aviation pilots to volunteer their skills to provide free transportation for people in need of critical medical treatment not available to them locally. Every year Angel Flight pilots fly thousands of “missions” making it possible for people to access lifesaving medical care which would otherwise be unavailable to them.

Our volunteer pilots provide this transportation at no cost to the patients or passengers. Since 1991, our pilots have flown more than 35,000 missions and have contributed more than $35 million to this effort.”

To learn more about the Angel Flight program, please visit their website.

ALL are welcome at our meeting on July 11, you do not need to be a Cancer patient or the caregiver of a patient.

The Moreno Valley Cancer Support Group meeting from 5:30pm — 7:00pm at:

United Church of Angel Fire
(Fellowship Hall—Lower Level)
40 West Ridge Road
Angel Fire, NM 87710
