Angel Flight East News

I Was Just About to Embark on Life…

This post was written by AFE Passenger, Monique.

Angel Flight East came at a critical point in my life to be just that, angels to help in my battle against cancer.

I was diagnosed in February of 2017. The news floored me. I lost my Mother to breast cancer when I was 18 years old. I was a freshman in college and just about to embark on life. I have a 9 year old son and I wanted to be here for him. The loss of a mother too soon leaves a long term void that no one else can fill.

I live in Northern Virginia and began making 5 Hour drives back and forth to Philadelphia for tests and surgeries. This was both exhausting and time consuming. I would get up at 3 am to drive to Philadelphia and often times return the same day totally exhausted and in pain. I remember placing pillows and cushions around my body to help with easing the bumps in the road as we drove back and forth for treatments.

Words can’t express how thankful I am to be aware of Angel Flight East. The pilots and staff go beyond the call of duty to assist total strangers in their battle against cancer and embrace them like family. I now am able to better heal in the journey of my return to wholeness with the help of Angel Flight East. God truly bless you all.
