Angel Flight East is a nonprofit organization that provides free flights for patients in need of medical treatment far from home. This service is provided by a network of volunteer pilots who use their own airplanes and cover all costs of the flight.
Diane Messer, of Blue Hill, is battling chronic Lyme disease. On Thursday, a volunteer pilot from New York picked her up and flew her for free to Jamaica Plain VA Medical Center in Boston where she will receive treatment.
