I wanted to thank Citation Jet Pilots and all of the pilots who have stepped up and volunteered in order to ensure lifesaving product and donors can be transported to their destination. It is absolutely incredible the generosity your pilots have shown to support our efforts to move couriers and the product they carry from Canada into the United States. Without your support patients and their families would be left without hope for another day.
But it doesn’t stop there. Donors have increased fears of contracting COVID-19 flying commercial airlines so to transport donors to their donation location is also giving patients and their families the lifesaving cells they need. For May and June, volunteer pilots have flown 17 flight segments for donors and couriers saving 13 lives! That is incredible! This would not have been possible without your support and posting on association web sites.
Be The Match would like to thank you and the pilots that have volunteered to fly to support our mission and to those that will fly a future mission. Thank you.
Chief Executive Officer
