Airline discounts for caregivers.

My wife was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in March. She is handling it very well. Our current oncologist is not very aggressive. Just went to CTCA in Zion, Illinois this past week. Going to start treatments there next week. Seems like a really aggressive place. Have to travel by plane for treatments. Are there any discounts or groups that help out with cost for airline travel for the caregiver?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Check out the following website: corpangelnetwork.org.  They provide transportation free of charge on corporate jets but their are guidelines, etc.  I am not familiar firsthand with this service but have heard good things about it from others on various cancer boards. 

Good luck, maybe they can work for you!!

Hope this helps
