Our pay it forward, C5BDI giveback continues! Our team recently committed resources and funding to support Mercy Medical Angels. Thank you very much to Jennifer Caugh from our team for recommending such an outstanding cause. When a patient is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease or a serious health issue their lives can quickly be turned upside-down. Often the care they need is far away. Faced with financial uncertainty the cost of transportation to the clinical care that they need can be a challenge.
Founded in 1972, Mercy Medical Angels removes the barrier to medical care with transportation on the ground with gas cards, bus and train tickets and in the air with flights flown by volunteer pilots and the commercial airlines. Mercy Medical Angels is the largest charitable medical transportation system in the world. Last year, they provided more than 24,000 free patient trips to clinical care, thereby ensuring that no one is ever denied medical care because they don’t have transportation.
