Funds continue to help recognize the corporations that fly cancer patients to treatment centers.
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 12, 2021 – Phillips 66® Aviation awarded $23,460 to longtime partner, Corporate Angel Network (CAN), during this year’s NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE) on October 12. CAN’s sole mission is to help cancer patients access the best treatment by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft.
The donation is a part of Phillips 66 Aviation’s sponsorship of the Corporate Angel Award, a unique program that recognizes corporations and their flight departments that have demonstrated outstanding dedication as participants of CAN. The award recognizes four corporate flight departments each year. This year’s recipients are Executive Jet Management, Cigna, Hanson Communications and Stryker Corporation. There are more than 500 major corporations that participate in CAN.
“On behalf of Phillips 66 Aviation, it is an honor to present this check to CAN as we continue to support their mission in helping cancer patients access the best treatment centers,” said Lindsey Grant, Manager, Aviation. “Through the Corporate Angel Award, we look forward to our ongoing partnership with CAN not just at NBAA, but throughout this year and future years to come.”
Phillips 66 has sponsored the Corporate Angel Award since 2010, donating more than $220,000 in order to honor and help provide the recognition that these outstanding CAN participants deserve.
“Since our founding 40 years ago, what has remained constant is our resilience in providing the best service for our patients and their families,” said Gina A. Russo, Corporate Angel Network’s Executive Director. “We would like to thank our supporters including Phillips 66 Aviation, Safe Flight Instrument, LLC and Business & Commercial Aviation magazine for this award. It is because of their generosity that we can continue to bring hope and reduce a patient’s physical, emotional and financial stress in granting them access to specialized medical centers.”
Corporate Angel Network arranges approximately 250 patient flights each month and has completed 66,000 cancer patient flights since its inception in 1981.
