Woman is kept alive to save unborn baby

Survival hopes hinge on mom living at least a month more

You may have seen this article in the news lately. This young Catholic couple graduated from my alma mater, and are caught in an unbelievably difficult and unusual situation. When his pregnant wife succumbed to a stroke and was later pronounced brain dead, Jason made the decision to keep her body on life support until their unborn child is old enough to be delivered. The odds are not good, but if Susan can be kept alive for a few weeks more, the child has a chance of survival.

The emotional and financial burden on Jason is unimaginable. Please keep Susan, Jason and the children in your prayers. If anyone would like to make a donation to help with the hospital bills, you may do so here:
