In 1998, I was living with my 5 year old son in central Florida. That summer, the area was ravaged by wildfires. The smoke from the fires was constant, thick and inescapable. My son, being asthmatic, had been hospitalized for a couple of days with no improvement in his breathing despite all the medical care he was receiving. His pediatrician told me in no uncertain terms, that my only option was to get him out of the area. His chances of survival were growing dimmer each day. Being a single, working mother, I had neither the resources or support system to make that happen. I spent hours on the phone, calling hospitals, airlines and charities to no avail. Then someone told me about Angel Flight. As soon as I contacted them, the wheels started turning. The next morning, my son and I were on our way out of Florida. They transported us all the way to Michigan. When the fires were finally out, Angel Flight didn't forget about us. They made sure that we got safely back to Florida. I can't say enough about this organization. They were amazingly efficient, caring, involved and I could go on and on! But the bottom line is, they literally saved my son's life. And for that I am more grateful than I will ever be able to express.
