PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 15, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — The Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network stands with Texas Right to Life, calling for Houston Methodist Hospital to allow mother of Chris Dunn, Ms. Evelyn Kelly, to speak for Chris so that Chris continues living.
Chris Dunn, 46, and a former EMT, has been in the Houston hospital for more than eight weeks because he collapsed, likely due to a mass on his pancreas. While Chris breathes with assistance from a ventilator, he is conscience and alert. His mother has had to fight for Chris’s continued care because Methodist Hospital has invoked the statutory process, found in the Texas Advanced Directives Act, which allows the hospital to override medical directives of a patient and provide only ten days’ notice before withdrawing life-sustaining treatment.
