    My sister in law is in midst of stage 4 stuff herself. I know in her case her church has programs that provides this kind of assistance. Maybe she has a place of worship she can inquire within? There are also non profits like

    Angel Flight (mentioned above) is the organization that came to my mind as well. I think it's worth getting in touch with them to see how they can help you. They are an amazing organization! I wish you all the best and a speedy recovery for your wife (and 744's sister in law).

    My dad's flown several trips for Angel Flight, but he's mostly around SFO. I've heard good things. For the kind of short trip you're asking about, that makes more sense because burning 25K miles every couple of weeks is going to really strain some people's accounts. Angel Flight could also probably fly into a closer municipal airport and save you a drive to Tucson.
