Mercy Medical Angels
June 27, 2011

I have been a Board Member for Mercy Medical Airlift since its inception and have been so very pleased to hear, see and read so many of the letters of grateful patients and families served. The volunteer pilots whose planes, time and fuel are allat their own expense do so as a wonderful service to all our patients and ther families.
I never gave a thought that I might one day be the beneficiary of these services until my wife needed medical transport to Cleveland for her open heart sugery. When we learned that she was eligible for the flight to the Cleveland Clinic we were very relieved and grateful for the bed to bed transfer on this very gentle compassionate ride in the specially equipped Bananza.

Review from CharityNavigator
AIR COMPASSION FOR VETERANS
March 14, 2010

Never have I seen so few (volunteers) do so much for our veterans in their time of need with so much compassion and so few funds. When the goverment services are not timely or not available Air Compassion for Veterans steps in ( by invitation ) to see that medical services are available at some distant location and transports the wounded warrior and his family at no cost.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Transport of my wife for open heart surgery at Cleveland Clinic (and return). Timing and ease for the"patient"and me was critical and done so well by the flight crew(volunteers) Coordination of services at both ends of trip was seemless and appropriate
