Why We Do What We Do

One day in Sidney I was introduced to Chuck Lovallo, whose son had been through leukemia. On one occasion Chuck had been flown to Vancouver by a pilot friend to see his son who was not, at that time, doing well. When his son improved Chuck looked online and found numerous Angel Flights in the USA but none in Canada. He did some groundwork but was hampered by his lack of “airline” experience which the Regulatory Authorities wanted.

So, there I was, having a quiet coffee when we were introduced and within 30 minutes, I had agreed to set up the Flight Operations for Angel Flight. From there I also agreed to take on Fundraising and became VP and Director of Operations.

When Chuck decided to leave Angel Flight, I took over as President and CEO. As we expanded to include adults with cancer it became obvious that Darlene, in her role of managing Cancer Lodges, was an incredible source for clients etc. I got to know her well and when she decided to retire from her position at the Lodge, I asked that she join us – a blessing!

As I write this, we have carried over 2,100 clients, something we are all very proud of. And that is why we do what we do.
