The Corporate Angel Network (CAN) achieved a major milestone last month by providing air transport for its 30,000th cancer patient since its founding 26 years ago. The Westchester County, N.Y.-based national charity arranges free transport for cancer patients using empty seats on corporate and fractional aircraft. For the milestone flight, Liberty Mutual Insurance carried a patient from Atlanta to Houston’s M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Said CAN executive director Peter Fleiss, “It’s because of the continuing support of our corporate participants, volunteers, board and advisory board, aviation organizations, publications and financial donors that we’ve been able to help thousands of cancer patients in the past, and will continue to help thousands more in the future.”
