- Center for Hospice Care's Patient Story Featured in National Campaign
Center for Hospice Care's story on patient pilot, Terry Meland, a 71-year-old former mortgage banker who had a love of flying airplanes was featured in the “Moments of Life: Made Possible By Hospice” national multi-media campaign. When Terry was diagnosed with a lung disease eleven years ago, he was no longer allowed to hold a private pilot’s license. When he began to receive services from CHC, he told his social worker about his bucket list – wanting to fly one more time. CHC jumped into action and posted a plea on our Facebook page looking for a pilot. Almost immediately we had a reply from the Indiana Flight Center at Elkhart Municipal Airport. Just weeks after the Facebook post a crowd of family, friends and staff from CHC watched Terry step into the Cessna 172 and take to the skies for a thirty minute flight. A GoPro camera in the plane and a camera team on the ground captured what the day was like for Terry. This story made local news headlines and is the first “Moments” story from Indiana to be featured in the national campaign, a project of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO).
