Passenger Donna T. with pilot So. CA Wing Command Pilot Rich Pickett. Donna is a 37-year-old single mother of five children. She has stage IV cervical cancer and needs to travel to Cancer Centers of America in Goodyear, AZ from Las Vegas, NV for specialized treatment. Donna left her job because she’s too ill to work, and her family’s only source of income is her monthly social security. Donna started flying with us last December and this year our volunteer pilots have provided 10 round-trip flights so that Donna’s transportation to her treatments is one less expense for her to worry about.
