(Click On Detroit) – A Metro Detroit mother is fighting to keep her son on life support after doctors told her he is brain dead.

Bobby Reyes, 14, of Ash Township, is hospitalized at Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor after he suffered an asthma attack a week ago.

Doctors told Sarah Jones that after one more test confirms a lack of viable brain activity, her son will be removed from life support Friday morning.

A specific process is used to determine if a person is brain dead.

Jones said she understands that, but she wants a bit more time in case God wants to perform a miracle. She is seeking a legal injunction to stop the hospital from taking Bobby off life support. CONTINUE
