Chevron Global Aviation Provides $25,000 To Corporate Angel Network

CAN Arranges Free Flights On Business Jets

Chevron Global Aviation has donated $25,000 to Corporate Angel Network in support of the charity's efforts on behalf of cancer patients. CAN arranges free flights to treatment for these patients using the empty seats on business aircraft.

"Sometimes there is little good news in the life of a person who suffers from cancer," said Keith Sawyer, General Manager, General Aviation, Chevron Global Aviation. "The organization we are honoring with this donation is often the bearer of this good news. Corporate Angel Network clears away some of the worry, discomfort and extra cost of distant travel for treatment that so many cancer patients must endure."

Chevron has been supporting CAN through its co-sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award, a Chevron initiative, since 2001. This has resulted in donations totaling more than $200,000.

"The business aviation community is an added beneficiary of CAN's work." Sawyer continued. "The recognition that participating companies and their flight departments receive for this charitable work reflects warmly on the more-than-500 companies that have provided empty seats enabling cancer patients to receive critically needed specialized treatment."

Peter H. Fleiss, Corporate Angel Network's Executive Director, said "Working with Chevron Global Aviation over the years has been a genuine pleasure.  Contributions such as this are characteristic of the broad support provided to CAN by the business aviation industry. Chevron Global Aviation has been a strong partner in our efforts for years and we join the many cancer patients they've helped in expressing gratitude."
