CHAMPAIGN - A local woman says her life-changing organization is now struggling to meet its budget.
Wanda Whitsitt is the founder and president of LifeLine Pilots, a Peoria-based non-profit that provides transportation for people needing medical care.
Since its launch in 1980, Whitsitt says they have helped over 7,300 people in over 40 states fly free to centers where they can be treated.
