AFNE Volunteer Michael Harbater For Completing 400 Flights
We are incredibly blessed to have amazing compassionate volunteer pilots like Michael who are at the core of our mission to fly patients so they can access the medical care they so desperately need to survive.
Many patients in rural communities rely on volunteer pilots, like Michael, to transport them to large medical facilities for recurring specialized treatment. Without our volunteer pilots, a lot of patients would find travel by car or lack of financial resources an additional burden in their already challenging health journey.
Michael has helped hundreds of patients like Mason H. (age 16 – from Marlton, NJ) who has traveled on over 300 Angel Flights to treat burns that cover 87% of his body. He also assisted Maci (age 5 – from Berrien Center, MI) who travels for treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering for Neuroblastoma. The impact our volunteer pilots make on our patients and their families lives are not just immediate but for the long-term!
Be-virkat elohim, Michael and congratulations again on this amazing accomplishment!
Fr. Larry & the AFNE Staff
