    Is there an organization that may be able to help me with airfare.

    My ex-wife has cancer. She lives in Korea. My 2 daughters would like to see her before she dies. Is there an organization that may be able to help me with the airfare?

      Hi Bill, sorry for your Ex-wifes condition. Here is a blog post we posted a few weeks ago on free air for patients. I'm not sure about the specifics of family to see a family member. But this will be a great place to start. There are different corporate organizations listed, give them a call and see what you dig up. https://www.whatnext.com/blog/posts/free-flights-for-cancer-patients

      You may want to check Southwest Airlines. There were offering free air fare, round trip to a select few outpatient oncology facilities that treated patients with cancer, either themselves or their families could re connect. Perhaps you could call there 1-800 number and ask to speak with someone in charge of promotions. Sorry I can't give you more detail but it is worth a try to see if your ex-wife meets the criteria, best wishes.

      Try LifeLine Pilots........ [email redacted]. Office[phone number redacted] fax[phone number redacted]
      They were willing to help with my mom but she was unable to walk on her own to board the plane and that was one of the requirements. We were trying to fly her from Georgia to Michigan, her home. It was free of charge. Give them a call and see. Wish you luck!
