Where there's hope, there's Hope Air

These stories represent the many journeys that patients across Canada undertake every day on their road to wellness. Whether traveling to treat cancer, to receive a diagnosis for a condition that local healthcare teams can’t explain, or for important follow up care one key element remains the same in all these stories: Hope Air patients are strong people, contributing to their home communities who didn’t ask to get sick and who find solace in having a place to turn.

The video “Wings of Hope” has been designed to capture that common thread. The stories below speak to the lived experiences of Hope Air patients.
