Maybe this will help someone out there?

Angel Flight
Angel Flight Northeast is a non-profit organization that provides free air transportation to patients and their families needing medical treatment whose financial resources would not otherwise enable them to receive care. They have scheduled more than 52,000 flights since it was founded in 1996, flying over 8 million miles and are a member of the Air Charity Network (formerly Angel Flight America). Almost half of Angel Flight Northeast's patients are children. They currently have more than 1,500 pilots volunteering their time and aircraft.

Corporate Angel Network
Corporate Angel Network is a charitable organization that arranges free flights for cancer patients to treatment centers, using the empty seats on corporate aircraft flying on routine business. Based in White Plains, N.Y., the 23-year-old service, which arranges 1,200 flights a year, is open to all cancer patients, bone marrow donors, and bone marrow recipients who are not in need of medical support while traveling. Patients may travel as often as necessary, and eligibility is not based on financial need.
