|The “Roots & Wings” Program was established by the Jeffrey Modell Foundation to provide travel and related support to families whose child has been identified with a potentially life threatening Primary Immunodeficiency, that requires lifesaving medical care. These little patients often require transportation to specialized centers where they might reside for several months, while undergoing treatment. “Roots & Wings” will make life easier, reduce the burdens, and enable these children to have a second chance at life.
Angel Flights has joined with JMF to provide free air transportation by their volunteer pilot network for the patients and their families, especially those living in rural areas that need specific care at urban hospitals.
Vicki Modell, Co-Founder of JMF said: “With this new partnership, we can provide hope to families across the nation and the necessary ‘Roots and Wings’ to save many precious lives.”
