Angel Parking Now Includes Travelers to St Jude Children's Research Hospital

Patients and their families traveling to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital can now enjoy the Angel Parking Program, which provides free airport parking and shuttle service to the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport.

The Angel Parking Program was created in October of 2012 when Park’N Ticket Airport Parking, recognizing the extreme financial hardship that medical treatment can put on a family, helped our first family with free parking.  The family’s expression of gratitude led this us to take it a step further and create this free program serving all patients of M.D. Anderson in Houston.   Almost 3 years later, we are thrilled to help guests take over 80 trips for their treatment and with St. Jude joining the program, we hope to help many more.

The addition of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to the Angel Parking Program was a natural one, since Park’N Ticket is in its 2nd year sponsoring the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer.  Raising funds for St Jude and offering this program to their patients is truly meaningful to our family and team members.  Many of us have gone through what these families are experiencing and we hope that we can bring some small bright spot in what can be a very dark time, just by letting our guests know there are people who care about you and want to help.  

Patients and caregivers can request Angel Parking for their travels to MD Anderson or St. Jude through our website.  To make other travel arrangements with each hospital contact MD Anderson’s Patient Travel Program or St. Jude Travel Office.
