January 7, 2021 GMT

NEW YORK, Jan. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aviation Week Network ’s Business & Commercial Aviation (BCA), the premium resource that delivers “how-to” operational insight, is one of the supporting sponsors of Corporate Angel Network’s 10th Annual Angel Award, along with Phillips 66 Aviation and Safe Flight Instrument Corporation. The award recognizes four Corporate Angel Network (CAN) corporations who have gone above and beyond to support cancer patients in critical need of accessing specialized treatment. The 2020 Angel Award recipients are Conagra Foods, Exelon, Proctor & Gamble and Verizon.


CAN helps cancer patients access the best treatment by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft. CAN and the award sponsors acknowledge the continued generosity of these partners and the impact their flight departments have on cancer patients throughout the country.

“We are extremely grateful that Phillips 66, BCA and Safe Flight Instrument Corporation afford CAN the opportunity to recognize the outstanding flight departments who make our mission possible. The donated funds from this award go directly to supporting patient resources and with the ongoing pandemic, they are critical to ensuring we can help those in need,” said Gina Russo, CAN Executive Director.

BCA continues to champion CAN’s cause and provide contributions that will go directly to supporting patient resources. With the pandemic still impacting flight activity, CAN has been working with partners to provide dedicated flights to ensure patients continue to have access to the care they need. These funds will help to provide alternative solutions and extended resources to patients traveling to the country’s top cancer centers.

The 10th Annual Angel Award is sponsored by BCA, Phillips 66 and Safe Flight Instrument Corporation.
