Houston Ground Angels sole mission is to help patients access the best possible treatment for their specific type of illness by arranging free ground transportation from all airports within a 30 mile radius of the Texas Medical Center, Houston, TX to treatment using a network of volunteers (Ground Angels). This improves the patients’ chances of survival by getting to cutting edge treatment and at the same time, it reduces their emotional stress, physical discomfort and financial burden.
