Greensboro Rotary’s Angel Flight Team Flies Lung Transplant Patient
Contributed by Warren Ludlam
The Greensboro Rotary Club’s Angel Flight team continues working to help those in need with its free air transportation to special medical appointments. Our pilots volunteer to fly transplant recipients, organ donors, cancer patients, burn survivor children, kidney patients, and others dealing with chronic health issues at no charge.
Recently, two of our team’s pilots, Jon Wells and Ashley Hayes, flew a double lung transplant patient from her home in Shelby to Duke University Hospital in Durham. Candy is being seen by pulmonary and lung specialists for her ongoing follow-up treatments.
Our Greensboro Rotary Angel Flight team’s fuel is funded by the Greensboro Rotary Club Foundation, enabling us to fly volunteer Angel Flight missions. The flights benefit chronically-ill children, adults, and military veterans by providing free air transportation to and from their special medical treatments and for reasons of compassion. Our team’s pilots donate their time and aircraft to assist those in need at no cost on an unlimited basis. Club members are encouraged to direct referrals requesting assistance to team manager Warren Ludlam at firstname.lastname@example.org.
