WMBD/WYZZ TV – PEORIA -- A group of special pilots are some people's lifeline to medical treatment. Doctor Bruce Chien is a volunteer for LifeLine Pilots. He flies to pick people up who need medical help but don't have the means to get to it. He flew from Peoria to Chattanooga to get 21-year-old Kelly Holbrooks. She needs to get the Mayo Clinic to get a gastric pace maker. Getting the pace maker will allow her to live without her feeding tube.
The Holbrook's family live in a rural town and say they're thankful for the help. LifeLine pilots will be holding an open house on Saturday, March 28th, at Peoria International Airport's Byerly Terminal. That will be from 10 AM to 2 in the afternoon. For more information visit their website.
