Local plane crash survivor to speak at prayer breakfast

Glendale Heights, IL – Adventist GlenOaks Hospital is proud to sponsor a community event commemorating the 57th annual National Day of Prayer. Schaumburg resident Jeff Miller, one of the survivors of the 1989 crash of United Airlines flight 232, will be the keynote speaker. This is the ninth year Adventist GlenOaks Hospital is sponsoring the event along with other community groups.

Miller, who owns Divine Signs and Graphics in Schaumburg, was on board Flight 232 when the plane’s rear engine exploded, forcing an emergency landing in a cornfield in Sioux City, Iowa, 19 years ago. The plane cartwheeled, broke into pieces, and burst into flames, killing 113 people. Miller was among the 184 survivors. Community leaders will join Miller in praying for our nation and its future.

“This prayer breakfast speaks to our mission as a Christian health care leader of partnering with physicians and the community to provide whole-person care and promote wellness,” said DeLora Hagen, manager of pastoral care at Adventist GlenOaks Hospital. “We want to extend the healing care of Christ not only to our patients but to our community as well.”

Members of the media are invited to cover Miller’s appearance at a breakfast scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. May 1 at Glendale Lakes Golf Club, 1550 President St., Glendale Heights. The event is free to working media; please RSVP to Lisa Parro at lisa.parro@ahss.org or (630) 312-7508 by April 25.

Tickets for the general public are available for $20 a person or $150 for a table of eight. Please RSVP by calling (630) 856-7525 by April 25.
