Procter & Gamble Provides Premium Transportation for Cincinnati Children’s Patient

Avi Newhouse, 12, is in remission for cancer, but his weakened immune system makes commercial travel impossible. He needed help getting from his home in New York to Cincinnati Children’s for treatment. Thanks to the Corporate Angel Network and Procter & Gamble, he was able to make the trip.

The Corporate Angel Network arranges free flights for cancer patients to treatment facilities on more than 500 corporate jets with unused seats, and Procter & Gamble volunteered its private plane for use by Avi and his mother.

“As pilots, it’s always great to know that our day-to-day work can help others. Partnering with the Corporate Angel Network is a very rewarding part of our job. We and everyone at P&G wish Avi a speedy and complete recovery,” said P&G global flight operations pilot Capt. Joe Lowenstein.
