Victory Junction Camper Transported by Rotary Angel Flight
by Warren Ludlam, Contributor
The Greensboro Rotary/Angel Flight team, supported by the club’s Foundation which covers fuel used to fly its missions, continues to volunteer in helping fly at no charge kidney patients, cancer patients, burn survivor children, tumor patients, organ donors, transplant patients, and others dealing with chronic health issues.
Recently, Eric Perdew, club member and one of our Rotary/Angel Flight volunteer pilots, and club member Warren Ludlam flew a 15-year-old kidney disease and diabetic amputee patient home to Baltimore following his free week at the Victory Junction camp. His dad expressed gratitude to Greensboro Rotary and Angel Flight for the air transportation assistance we provided at no cost – saying it normally would have been a very difficult six-hour drive for them.
Donations from the Greensboro Rotary Club Foundation are used by our volunteer pilot team to provide the fuel for their private planes used on Angel Flight missions, enabling them to aid people in need through our club’s support and community service. The flights by Greensboro Rotary’s pilots benefit chronically ill children, adults, and military veterans by making available free air transportation to/from their specialized medical appointments and for reasons of compassion.
Club members wishing to experience one of our Angel Flight missions are invited to fly along by contacting Eric or Warren.
