Air Ambulance Service Reunites Terminally Ill Man With His Family For His Final Hours

After being given 48 hours to live, a patient with terminal pancreatic cancer turns to Air Care Life Flights to transport him home so he could spend his final hours with family

Online PR News – 02-June-2010 – – On Thursday, May 27th, air ambulance company Air Care Life Flights, Inc. received a call from a terminally ill patient in immediate need of transportation. The patient (Mr. H) had been residing in a hospice facility in Fort Meyers, Florida. His family living in Tennessee was unable to visit often, and wanted him home for his final hours.

Due to his critical condition, Mr. H was unable to make a trip to see his family via ground ambulance not only because of amount of time the trip would take, but the stress that the motion of the drive would put on his body. He was also unable to take a commercial flight to see his loved ones, because of his need for onsite monitoring and medical services. The three hour flight with Air Care Life Flights would provide Mr. H with the medical care and comfort he needed to get to his family safely.

Within one hour of the phone call from the patient, ACLS CEO Steve Wallace had arranged for a flight Friday, May 28th. Of course, this meant that Mr. H could spend his last few days in the comfort of his own home, in his own bed, surrounded by his family.
