SINCE 1981 A VERY SPECIAL AIR FORCE HAS BEEN BATTLING CANCER.

The Corporate Angel Network, Inc. (CAN), established in 1981, enables cancer patients to obtain optimum treatment at approved medical facilities often far from their homes. There is no cost to the patients because they use the empty seats on corporate aircraft operating on business flights.
