Take a Moment to Meet Stephen ~ Harrington, ME
Take a moment to meet Stephen from Maine, who receives treatment for cancer at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. When Stephen reached out to our Mission/Flight Coordination Team for the first time in 2013, we assured him that we could help him get to the medical care he needed and would be here to help him for as long and as often as he needs our assistance.
Since then, we have coordinated 32 flights of healing and hope so Stephen could travel 7,000+ miles to access medical care he needs to survive. In addition to cancer care and treatment, Stephen also is receiving medical care for degenerative bone disease in his hips as a result of the chemotherapy.
Through the efforts of our Mission/Flight Coordinators, volunteer pilots and Earth Angels, Stephen’s life has been changed as we continue to provide the highest quality care for patients needing medical care and treatment.
Flights like Stephen’s continue to be made possible by the generous support of our sponsors & foundations, like the Maine Cancer Foundation – along with long-term partnerships with commercial aviation providers – such as Cape Air.
Stephen, like all our patients, is a cherished member of the Angel Flight NE family. Every day, we receive calls for assistance from patients who need support at their most trying of times in their healthcare journeys. Our dedication to our patients goes beyond the flights as we are always there for our patients as they grow and heal.
