“@angel_medflight Thanks for taking such great care of my friend & his family.”
– Marissa Levin
Marissa Levin, founder and CEO of Successful Culture, recently mentioned her personal experience with Angel MedFlight in her column on Inc.com. Marissa’s friend became critically ill hundreds of miles from his home and his oncology physicians. Through a colleague, Marissa discovered Angel MedFlight, and our critical care medical team was selected to transport her friend.
We were pleased to assist Marissa’s friend and his family during a very difficult time, returning him to the care of his hometown physicians to receive treatment with the support of his family and friends. Everyday, we are fortunate to assist patients and their loved ones in their time of need.
We send our sincere condolences to Marissa and her friend’s family. It was an honor for us to be part of their journey.
An Excerpt from Marissa’s article
A very close personal friend recently passed away from Stage 4 Adrenal Cancer after being diagnosed only 3 1/2 months ago. He and his wife of 20 years are the parents of three children, ages 18, 16, and 14. My friend was to start chemotherapy in early May. Prior to his treatment, he desperately wanted to travel with his wife for one last getaway, to a location about 5 hours flight time from home.
Shortly after their arrival at the resort, he became gravely ill, and required hospitalization. While hospitalized, he deteriorated rapidly, to the point where doctors doubted his ability to travel back home. My close friend (his wife) kept me apprised, and said to me, “it’s highly unlikely we will be able to get him home.
I immediately reached out to my network. One of my professional friends, a fellow Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) member, is a pilot, and is quite active in the aviation community. I shared with him the urgency of transporting my friend home via an air ambulance. I took a chance that perhaps he knew someone who could make this happen.
He reached out to the owner of Angel MedFlight, a provider of Air Ambulance services. They provide air-based Intensive Care Units. This proved to be the only way to transport my friend home…
…It is indisputable that bringing my friend home to be among friends and family in the comfort of his own home, temporarily extended his life. Read the entire post on Inc. at http://www.inc.com/marissa-levin/the-most-important-rule-of-networking-no-one-talks-about.html
