The Corporate Angel Network of Australia

is a not for profit organisation run entirely by volunteers.

Corporate Angel Network of Australia is a registared charity working nationally to provide FREE air transport between home and treatment centre for cancer and leukaemia patients, bone marow donors and members of their families or carer.

The network liaises with hospitals and cancer and leukaemia support services right across Australia. This service does not provide travel for people who are entitled to government assisted travel and does not provide hospital to hospital transfers.

ALL patients travelling must have a Doctor's certificate of fitness to travel by air, must be ambulatory and be able to travel unaccompanied. All requests for assistance are from the hospital or support service. The Angel Network do not accept requests directly from the travellers or members of their family.

Most requests for this service are made by hospital social workers or nursing staff. For further information please check out The Angel Network of Australia website at www.angelnet.asn.au (phone: 07 5496 8854)
