Susan Torres

Susan Torres, a loving mother and wife, collapsed on May 7,2005. She was 17 weeks pregnant with her second child at the time. She was rushed to the hospital where she was diagnosed with stage four melanoma. She is essentially brain dead and being kept alive by machines in order for her child to have a chance at survival. On June 28th, the sonogram was able to determine that the baby is a girl. On July 6th, the doctors said that everything was still going fine but they did have to move back the first possible date they can deliver the baby from July 11th to July 18th due to a previous misestimated due date.

Susan's husband, Jason rarely leaves his wife's side although he knows there is no chance for her survival. He must bare the pain of knowing that at any moment he could lose the child that so many have worked so hard to save. There are no guarantees and I'm sure the not knowing has to be extruciating.

Jason and Susan also have a 2-year old son, Peter who wonders each day where his mommy is.

This is such a sad situation, please go to The Susan Torres Fund to donate to this family and find out more information regarding the Torres family. Jason has been unable to work and Susan and the baby's medical bills are astronimical. Any help that you can give them, I'm sure would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reminder. Gave what I could, via PayPal. And prayers.

Prayers may be all I can give, but they have 'em.
