“Retired from Practice, But Still a Doctor at Heart”
Dr. Jack Blackshear may no longer practice full time as a gastroenterologist, but he's still caring for patients in his own way....
Thanks to everyone who came out last month for the Tidal Aviation benefit for AFSC at the Lone Star Flight Museum at Ellington Field. We'll hope to see you there next year. (And thanks to our board chair, Wayne Maynard, for the photos!)

You give so much all year. Angel Flight South Central literally would be nothing without the generous support of our volunteer pilots. We do have a lean operating budget that we need to replenish each year, though, and our 100 Days of Summer campaign helps us get to that goal.
Please help the campaign by sharing it to your Facebook page or Twitter feed.
