An Alabama non-profit is using flight to get people in dire need to cancer and other medical treatments across the country.

In Monroeville, Alabama Pilots for Christ takes off with a greater purpose.

Rosalyn Sales, PR Director Pilots for Christ said,  “Trust in god’s provision to provide and we step out on faith and do the flights.”

Multiple times a week a small crew with the non profit coordinates a number of flights for critical patients and their families. Sales said, “They don’t have to submit a financial statement or anything like that to us. It’s really based on the battle that they are fighting right now in their lives.”

That’s Terry Archer’s reality. Almost a year ago, a routine eye exam revealed a tumor on Terry’s pituitary gland.

No hope for removal from area surgeons, but they got a yes from a doctor in Los Angeles who will use a cutting edge approach.

Krista Archer said, “going to make an incision in his right eyebrow and it is a tiny instrument that has a camera and the instruments used to cut the tumor away.”

The two must come up with $31,000 for the surgery, the rest will be covered by insurance.

That brings us back to Pilots for Christ. The organization is funding The Archer’s flight to California for the surgery.

Rosalyn Sale,  PR Director Pilots for Christ said, “People call us angels, we are not angels we are just people that are willing servants that are here to help people in their greatest time of need.”
