Woman kept alive in hopes of saving baby

"A 26-year-old pregnant woman with cancer whose brain function ceased last month is being kept alive with a respirator in hopes she can have a very premature baby who has a chance to survive." ...

"The couple has health insurance but expects it will cover only a fraction of the cost, currently running at least $7,500 a day, he says."

We can donate to the Susan M. Torres Fund.

They hope the baby will make it to "25 weeks—about mid-July—at which point the baby would have a chance of surviving outside the womb." ...

"If the case brings to mind that of Terri Schiavo, Torres said yesterday, there are really no similarities, because he and Susan's family are in agreement over her treatment and because they have, as best as they can, accepted that if it weren't for the baby, she would be gone."

We can pray!
