Corporate Angel Network Flew A Record Number Of Patients In 2010

Over Three Thousand Transported To And From Medical Facilities At No Charge


Corporate Angel Network arranged corporate flights to specialized treatment for 3,021 cancer patients in 2010, a 9 percent increase over the previous record of 2,778 and a 21 percent increase over 2009 patient flights.

Dr. Brian Kushner, a world renowned oncologist specializing in Neuroblastoma at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City sent CAN the following congratulatory note upon learning of the record year:  "I see so many patients (all children) at the treatment center who are benefiting hugely from this service.  Thank you!"

In September, Corporate Angel celebrated another milestone when it transported its 35,000th cancer patient since the charity was founded in 1981.   It's now flown more than 36,000 patients.

The 35,000th flight carried William Relyea, 16 months, and his mother from Westchester County airport to his home in Syracuse, NY.  William had been receiving treatment for Neuroblastoma at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

"These records demonstrate the interest major corporations have in supporting cancer patients through CAN, even during challenging times when flights were being cut back," said Peter Fleiss, Executive Director.  "It's because of the generosity of our participating corporations that we are able to help so many." 

Since its founding 30 years ago, Corporate Angel has grown to include 530 participating corporations, six paid staff, and a team of 50 part-time volunteers who work with patients, physicians, corporate flight departments, and leading treatment centers to coordinate the medical travel needs of cancer patients with the flight activity of participating corporations.  CAN typically flies between 250 and 300 patients to treatment each month.
