"We are proud to provide a critical lifeline for patients and caregivers as they travel to receive or give life-saving care," said Laurie Barnett, Southwest Airlines' Managing Director of Communications and Outreach. "By providing complementary air travel, we're able to make life a little bit easier for families in trying times in their lives."
Since the program's inception in 2007, Southwest has donated nearly $32 million in transportation to support more than 79,000 patients and caregivers.
