Pitbull sent private plane to Puerto Rico to rescue cancer patients

Pitbull sent private plane to Puerto Rico to rescue cancer patients

In the days following the peak of the storm, a massive number of people living in Puerto Rico were left without power-including cancer patients requiring electricity to continue their chemo therapy.

The owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team, Mark Cuban, has loaned the NBA team's plane to one of his players, J.J. Barea, to deliver relief supplies to Puerto Rico, devastated after being hit by successive hurricanes, Irma and Maria.

Jenniffer González on Tuesday thanked the singer, Armando Christian Perez, for his good deed.

Pitbull is not just standing by rapping as the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico intensifies.

Twitter users were quick to commend his generosity.

Officials shut down surrounding airspace as a precaution to keep exploding missiles from hitting passing commercial jets. The last major arms warehouse explosion killed one person in the eastern town of Balakliya in March.

Pitbull told the New York Daily News that it was the least he could do.

Barea, who was lent the Mavericks team plane by Mark Cuban, brought food, water, and other supplies to Puerto Rico after speaking to his parents for the first time on Sunday.

"You always go to Puerto Rico - after the season when I fly in - you look out the window and it's lovely", Barea said after Wednesday's practice. "Together we can help rebuild our island and the Caribbean". He quickly made plans for his trip home after communicating with family and figuring out where help was needed most.
