Help

On May 7th, 2005, the day before Mothers’ Day, Susan M. (Rollins) Torres — a 26-year-old vaccine researcher at NIH; mother of a two-year-old son, Peter; graduate of the University of Dallas; and parishioner at St. Rita’s Catholic Church in Alexandria, Virginia collapsed. She was rushed to the Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington, where she has been diagnosed with stage four melanoma and is brain dead with no hope of recovery.
Susan was 17 weeks pregnant at the time and although the doctors have given her no hope of survival, they are fighting to keep her unborn child alive until at least July 11 where he or she will have a viable chance at life.

I made a small donation via Paypal this morning “to help defray the $1,500 a day ICU medical costs that insurance does not cover.” I hope you can too. If not, positive thoughts, encouraging messages and prayers for this family can also help.
