Mark Cuban lends private plane for Puerto Rico hurricane relief

Pitbull is sending his private jet to Puerto Rico to take in cancer patients who need chemo and ferrying them to the United States for treatment.

The rapper joins other stars, such as Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, in initiatives to help Puerto Rico bounce back.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (WTHR) - Relief supplies are finding their way to Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria decimated the island and some of those supplies are coming in thanks to Indiana University alum Mark Cuban.

In a statement made in NY she said this week, "What's foremost in my mind and many others, is trying to figure out the best way to help". The 48-year-old singer and actress made the announcement during a press conference with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Sunday.

"Mark gave him our team plane", team coach Rick Carlisle told ESPN.

Jenniffer González also thanked Yankee, quoting his tweet and writing: "Thank you for your commitment to your island, your work and help your people in the toughest moments".

Medics have been trying to move all dialysis and chemotherapy patients to hospitals with power but with a lack of fuel it is proving hard.

Hurricane Maria has been the most powerful storm to hit Puerto Rico in nearly a century.

A thankful and compassionate Barea is thinking about a follow-up trip to help even more.

Daddy Yankee, singer of worldwide hit Despacito, has also called for donations, as have Oscar victor Benicio Del Toro and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

Sports Illustrated reported that Barea's wife, Viviana Ortiz, has set up a YouCaring page to raise relief funds.
