MD Anderson Cancer Center is routinely rated as the top cancer hospital in America. In 2018, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer and was given a grim prognosis. A physician friend, and Leukemia survivor, encouraged me to get another opinion at MD Anderson. After four months of Chemotherapy, one week of SBRT Radiation, followed by Whipple surgery, I am proud to say that I am cancer free.
Pilots for Christ is a charitable organization that provides flights for patients needing critical care that cannot afford air transportation and are physically unable to travel by other means. One of the major difficulties in cancer care is transportation to hospitals that offer the best care. As many cancer patients must take a leave from their job, the financial stress of cancer care only adds to great stress these patients already feel. After my cancer diagnosis, when Covid hit, I was advised by my doctors not to fly commercial airlines. Pilots for Christ stepped up and flew me to all of my appointments in Houston at no cost. As I am now cancer free, I still fly with them, but only if they are taking other passengers.
