Mark’s Story

In January 2011, Mark’s wife, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, was shot in an assassination attempt. This tragic event forced Mark to learn more about air medical transport options as he searched for an air ambulance service to transfer Gabby to Houston for recovery and rehabilitation.

Mark understands all too well the needs of families facing the challenge of having to move a sick or injured family member across the country. He has reviewed Angel MedFlight’s best-in-class aviation and clinical safety protocols and is confident in the service that Angel MedFlight provides its customers.
