TUCSON, Jan. 28, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ — Life Legal Executive Director and attorney Alexandra Snyder and Bobby Schindler, Founder of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network met with hospital administrators in Tucson, Arizona this morning regarding a young man who has been denied nutrition and hydration.

David Ruiz, 32, suffered a stroke nearly a month ago, resulting in a serious brain injury. St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tucson withdrew David’s nutrition and most of his hydration nearly three weeks ago, saying food and water were “futile” medical treatments because of David’s injury. CONTINUE
