Imagine flying from out of state to MD Anderson for treatment every week, paying thousands of dollars a year on plane tickets, hotel bills and ground transportation.
Needless to say, it adds up quickly.
The Houston Ground Angels is a network of volunteers who donate their time to help provide patients in need free transportation to and from their health care facility.
All you have to do is ask, and a friendly face will be waiting at the airport ready to drive you to your next clinic visit.
In the past 10 years, with more than 6,800 missions completed (with patients traveling from 42 states), they've provided assistance to many.
