Heart Health Month is Febuary

We’re seeing Red at Mercy Jets during Heart Health Month

Heart disease is the leading killer of both men and women. Over 630,000 people in the U.S. will die this year due to Heart Disease and Stroke.  With February being National Heart Health Month, Mercy Jets is helping to combat this disease.

Mercy Jets will be joining the American Heart Association in promoting awareness during American Heart Month. Therefore, in addition to our normal donations, we will be taking additional proceeds from each air ambulance flight completed during the month of February and donating those towards organizations focused on prevention and finding a cure for heart disease.
