We all know life is too short, especially for those who suffer with terminal cancer. In additional to servicing wounded warriors, Luke’s Wings provides complimentary flights for veterans in hospice care. In April of 2016, we received a request from U.S. Air Force Captain Shelby E. (Ret.) to make one last wish come true – to see his daughter walk down the aisle. Shelby was diagnosed with end stage metastatic colon cancer which spread to his liver and other organs. With the help of donors like you, we had the ability to fly Shelby, his wife and his son to be there on his daughter’s special day. As you can see from the photos, there were tears of joy as he walked his daughter down the aisle, giving the family a treasured memory for the rest of their lives.

Total Value of Flights: $3,511
