Undergoing medical treatment can be an incredibly stressful time for individuals and their families. Getting to treatment shouldn’t be. Hope Air provides a vital link for patients and their families making access to healthcare truly universal. In my personal experience as a mother whose child required surgery as an infant, I know that every avenue of support to accessing treatment has a tremendous impact.
