Young Boy Says Goodbye to His Hero – Holiday Campaign 2022 Flight Story

Albania to Boston, MA

Growing up, we think of our parents being there for every major milestone in our lives. Unfortunately for David*, his father will not be there to see him reach these milestones. Diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and given only weeks to live after suffering a brain haemorrhage, his final wish was to have his son be by his side.

David’s uncle reached out to Give a Mile to see if we could help reunite the father and son.

“On behalf of my nephew, I can write that his father is his hero, a joy to be around and he will be truly be missed.”

Give a Mile was able to reunite David with his father for one final goodbye. We thank our amazing friends at Points for providing this flight of compassion. 

Could you help reunite more families this holiday season and help us reach our goal of 50 flights? Consider donating your unused Aeroplan or United miles today.
