Patient Stories

Our patients and their families are truly the heart of LifeFlight. We often meet those whom we care for on the worst day of their life, and an important part of our healing and resilience is to share their stories. We marvel and are inspired by their courage, determination, and grit as they move forward from that day.

If you are a former LifeFlight of Maine patient and would like to share your story, please contact Henry Frank, director of communications, at or 207-631-4307.
