Raquel’s Wings for Life is a non-profit organization servicing Wise County which transports cancer patients free of cost to the local medical center they need. Our goal is to alleviate the financial burden and time consumption of traveling from the patient’s home to the medical treatment facilities of their choice that are otherwise not available to them locally. We’ve taken over 100 flights since 2007.
There is absolutely NO COST
to the patient or traveling family.
Please be advised, we cannot provide medical assistance.
We understand the difficulties, expenses and immense time consumption required when traveling, and we strive to make the ground and air transportation as comfortable, worry-free and short as possible.
Registered patients are customarily flown in a private Beechcraft Baron aircraft. Assistance is offered boarding and unloading the plane. Our organization also has the privilege of flying a direct route to the point of destination. We can also offer complimentary ground transportation to the airport if needed.
