‘We’re Living a Nightmare, And We Feel Trapped,’ Says Titus Cromer’s Mother

(Detroit Free Press) – Rarely a day goes by when there isn’t a teenager visiting Titus Cromer Jr.’s hospital room in Royal Oak.

They talk to him, write messages in a book his mother bought, hoping the 16-year-old boy who dreamed of growing up to be an aerospace engineer will wake up one day to read them.

But doctors at Beaumont Hospital say that isn’t going to happen. Titus, they say, is brain-dead. He’s hooked up to a ventilator and has a feeding tube to keep his organs functioning until a court fight with his mom, LaShauna Lowry, can be resolved.

In an exclusive interview with the Free Press, Lowry said she doesn’t believe her son is brain-dead. CONTINUE
