Dear Friend & Supporter,
I could share many of the cases we’ve received this past year that would demonstrate the threats that exist in our healthcare system which are undermining our human dignity. Indeed, my recent article, Starving Patients to Death is Legal in Every State in America, underscores this reality.
This erosion of our medical rights reflects an increasing secular America. In other words, our freedoms to receive wanted medical care are being left to the sole discretion of physicians and bureaucratic hospital administrators.
What is happening today is not new to me, as my family battled an estranged husband, supported by a healthcare system that was opposed to providing my sister, Terri, life-affirming care. Tragically, we were unsuccessful and in March 2005, after two-weeks without food or water, Terri died by starvation and dehydration.
It was in response to Terri’s death that the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network was established, along with the 24/7 National Crisis Lifeline – to serve as patient advocates and to be there for families who are in crisis.
We are blessed to have so many faithful supporters who stand with us. It is only by your financial support and your investment in our mission that has enabled us to advocate for close to 4,000 families since we began our work in 2005. In fact, we are projecting close to a 10% increase in the calls we have received in 2022, compared to 2021.
This is why I am asking for and need your help.
We are a small non-profit organization, battling an enormous, powerful, and influential healthcare system, backed by the insurance industry, and we need you to stand with us so we can fight this anti-life agenda. We are clearly the David battling many Goliaths.
The various types of support and help we provide is all voluntarily at no cost to those who contact us. However, it costs close to $400 per day to operate our non-profit.
For the next three months (ending December 31) we would like to raise $30,000 which will help fund the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network in the upcoming year and specifically, our 24/7 National Crisis Lifeline which provides much needed assistance to our medically defenseless.
It is this 24/7 National Crisis Lifeline that will support the next patient or family calling us in a crisis, and it is our moral obligation to help those who are in harm’s way.
Raising $30,000 over the next three months is our goal, and we are asking for your help, whether it is a monthly or a one-time donation. We will keep you updated on our progress and would sincerely appreciate any gift you can contribute.
Whether it’s the medical professions disdain towards the cognitively disabled, or a decision that goes against the wishes of a family – when it comes to recognizing human equality of our medically vulnerable, we are witnessing an expanding anti-Christian world view.
And this anti-Christian mindset is not going way – it will only worsen. It’s why we must push back! You can count on us to never give up locking arms with families and their loved ones. But we need your help so we can continue to confront those who disregard our medically fragile.
Please spend time today to consider whether you can make an investment in our work. Anything you can contribute to help our $400 daily expenses and reach our $30,000 goal would be a wonderful!
God bless you,
P.S.: Please support the 24/7 National Crisis Lifeline by donating to our 3-month Fall campaign, so we’re equipped to help the next baby born that a hospital refuses to treat or whomever it is that needs life-affirming care. Click here to make a mont
