In Memoriam: Taking Care of Our Own

On behalf of the MedEvac Foundation International board and staff, we would like to extend our sincere condolences to the CareFlite team and families of fallen crew members 23-year-old mechanic Stephen Thomas Durler of Dallas, Texas, and 44-year-old pilot Guy Del Giudice of Keller, Texas. Both were killed in a medevac helicopter crash outside of Dallas on June 2nd.

CareFlite will hold a memorial service today to honor their lives and their courage. The Foundation activated its Family Grant Fund last week, and financial assistance is being provided to Durler’s and Thomas’ families. While money can never replace a life lost, we hope the funds will help cover some unanticipated expenses so that the families can take care of their loved ones.

In addition to the Family Grant Fund, the MedEvac Foundation also provides a Children Scholarship Fund, which benefits children who have lost a parent in an air medical accident.

And the Foundation is further providing start-up funding to the fledgling AAMS Survivors Network. The goal of this group is to proactively raise awareness regarding safe medevac transport and patient-care practices, and to provide timely, compassionate assistance and counseling to accident victims, their families, co-workers and friends.

For more information on these and other programs, please visit www.medevacfoundation.org or contact Amber Bullington at abullington@aams.org or (703) 836-8732.
