Corporate Angel Network (CAN) is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to help cancer patients access the best treatment available by arranging free travel on corporate aircraft. Business jet travel makes it possible for patients, especially those in locations with minimal airline access, to travel to specialized treatment centers.
“As we look back on the 40 years since CAN was created, we have evolved tremendously and wanted our brand to reflect that growth,” said Executive Director Gina Russo. “The new logo delivers the perfect progression from our past logo, which was initially sketched on a napkin by one of the first volunteers in 1981, to where we are now, 67,000 patient flights later in 2022.”
CAN was founded on the premise that corporations traveling on business jets could offer empty seats to cancer patients who needed to access specialized treatment centers across the country. “As the rebranding exercise began, it was essential for us to incorporate the foundation on which CAN was built – this includes both business aviation, as represented by the wing, and the giving side of our mission, as symbolized by the three stars,” said Russo. The stars are also a tribute to the organization’s three co-founders, Pat Blum, Leonard Greene and Jay Weinberg.
“We were thrilled to be able to showcase the new branding among so many important CAN partners during our annual reception. The future of CAN is bright and we are looking forward to the next 40 years of bringing cancer patients closer to their cure,” said Russo.
