Participants in medical research are more empowered than ever to influence the design and outcomes of experiments. Now, researchers are trying to keep up.

Participants in medical research are more empowered than ever to influence the design and outcomes of experiments. Now, researchers are trying to keep up.

Amber Sapp was browsing the Internet late one night in August when she happened to find out that her 12-year-old son’s clinical trial had failed.

Every four weeks for two-and-a-half years, she had shuttled Garrett to a hospital nearly six hours away. There, he was prodded and pricked with needles in the hope that the antibody treatment being tested would reverse a devastating genetic disease called Duchenne muscular dystrophy. But an early data analysis, Sapp learnt, had shown that the treatment wasn’t working.

The thought of wasting Garrett’s limited time with a failed trial was hard enough. The news was all the more disturbing because it didn’t come from the trial organizers, but through a Facebook post from another parent. “It was upsetting that we found out that way,” says Amber. “It sent everybody on Facebook into a tizzy.” Even Garrett’s local clinical-trial coordinator, someone who should have had intimate knowledge of what was happening with the research, hadn’t yet heard the news.

“A white knight buyer will come to our rescue.” (they won’t)

“A new buyer will keep us operating as before.” (they won’t)

“A new buyer will retain current management.” (they won’t)

So what’s the solution?

Our Purpose—Bringing vital help to the poorest of the poor.

For more than 20 years, Flying Doctors of America has been bringing together physicians, dentists, nurses, chiropractors, other health professionals and non-medical support volunteers to care for people who otherwise would never receive professional medical care. We operate under the “Mother Teresa Principle,” focusing on the poorest of the poor who live in conditions that are difficult for most Americans to imagine. Knowing that someone cares renews hope for these people who live in an otherwise hopeless situation.

With Flying Doctors, everybody wins. The medical and non medical volunteers miss only a few days of work and go on the adventure of a lifetime. Support volunteers serve as translators, team leaders, photographers and healthcare assistants. The individual or corporate sponsors get tax benefits plus the knowledge that they are making a real difference in the world. And most of all, those in need receive first-rate medical care.

Our Past—Launching an effective outreach on a wing and a prayer.

Flying Doctors of America was founded by Allan Gathercoal in 1990 with $700, a wing and a prayer. Today it’s a well known and established non-profit, non-sectarian organization. In the past twenty years the organization has flown more than 200 missions and provided free medical care to over 185,000 children, women and men. Among the areas served are Mexico, South America, Central America, Caribbean, India, Africa, South East Asia (Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia), China and Mongolia.

Known as an effective innovator and entrepreneur, Allan Gathercoal has pioneered churches, businesses and educational programs in California. He has earned graduate degrees in Psychology and Theology and a Doctorate from Columbia Theological Seminary with his focus on religious pluralism. In 1996 he received the “Vision of Race Unity Award.”. Allan has also taught Leadership Development at Emory University.

These credentials are impressive—but the most outstanding attribute Allan possesses is his passion and desire to help those in desperate need.

Our Future—Building long-term relationships with those we serve.

Flying Doctors of America has been providing greatly needed medical care for over twenty years. Our work has been fulfilling and challenging throughout the years. We have built strong lasting relationships with those we serve throughout the world Our Physicians, Dentists, nurses and other medical volunteers have experienced a life changing event by traveling to a third world country and helping the worlds’ poor. Our future is full of potential and we continue to bring hope and healing to the poorest of poor while bringing a sense of joy and accomplishment to the people who give their time and money for this worthy cause.
