Terri's Foundation Helps Save the Life of California Women

The reporter in the video news reports several times referred to Mrs Janet Rivera as being 'brain dead' in error. This same error was also largely repeated during the tragedy of Terri Schindler Schiavo.

Janet Rivera is NOT brain dead. If she were, she would NOT have begun to breathe on her own when the ventilator was removed. She IS brain damaged, resulting in being disabled, but she is also NOT dying. Starving/dehydrating anyone to death is wrong, and is cruel.

Terri's Foundation Helps Save the Life of California Women

It's a wake-up call. That's what the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation says about a story you first saw Monday on CBS47. The organization helped Janet Rivera's family find legal counsel after the Fresno County Public Guardian's office refused to give her food and water.

Rivera went about eleven days off life support and it wasn't until the family asked CBS47 for help and we began our investigation, that the county put back her feeding tube.

A judge ordered the county to restore her feeding tube and respirator, although the family says she was already breathing on her own.
