Angel Airlines For Cancer Patients’ (AACP) facilitates no-cost or reduced rate commercial airline tickets for needy cancer patients and their families. AACP encourages patient transport referrals through the National Patient Travel Center
Angel Airlines For Cancer Patients’ uses commercial airlines to provide charitable cancer patient travel. AACP does not duplicate any of the efforts of any other charity.
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.
Patients may access help supported by AACP by calling 1-800-296-1217. Information specialists will talk with the patient and determine the exact travel need and then refer them to the best type of assistance.
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. AACP assists 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.
