Winston Churchill, the grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, and Susan Polan, another cancer patient, flew home to Florida from treatment at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston on Corporate Angel Network’s 31,000th and 31,001st patient flights.
Polan, who had just returned from a course of chemotherapy, observed “Chemo was exhausting. I was in no condition to go through the ordeal of flying commercially, which can be very painful after treatment. I am so grateful to Corporate Angel Network for this flight.”
Churchill was, at one time, a volunteer pilot in the St. John’s Ambulance Air Wing. Their mission was to provide volunteer air service for the rapid transport of organs. He remembers “flying donor organs throughout Northern Europe at all hours in order to save lives.”
“It is wonderful that today so many large corporations should be so public spirited and caring towards cancer sufferers,” he continued. “It gave me great pleasure to help kidney patients in the past and, in the same way, Corporate Angel Network is an excellent way to help cancer patients who understandably are stressed, by making their lives a whole lot easier.”
