Terri Schiavo

Jeb Bush was preparing to release the emails he sent and received as Florida governor when he was excoriated by a letter-writer to The Miami Herald.

The headline: "Don't trust Jeb Bush with the power of the presidency."

The subject of many of the emails was Terri Schiavo. The letter-writer was her husband, Michael.

Bush's effort to stop Michael Schiavo from removing his brain-damaged wife's feeding tube was a defining moment of Bush's time in office.

The family of a 13-year-old California girl declared brain dead after tonsil surgery is encountering difficulty in obtaining two surgeries that she needs to undergo before she can be safely transferred to a long-term care facility. Now, they're receiving help from a foundation started by Terri Schiavo's family.

A lawyer for Children's Hospital Oakland said that it is unwilling to allow an outside doctor to fit Jahi McMath with the breathing and feeding tubes that the family has requested.

It's been seven years since the feeding tube keeping Terri Schiavo alive was pulled after a bitter battle that reached all the way to Congress and the White House. But the issues over end-of-life care have since faded from the public eye.

The Associated Press is reporting that Terri Schiavo's family members have moved the foundation they started after her death from St. Petersburg to Philadelphia.

Her brother Bobby Schindler said in a news release Tuesday that the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network moved to Philadelphia because of its proximity to New York and Washington. Also, he said, the family had lived in that area before moving to Florida years ago.

Schindler said the charity hopes to establish a center there offering rehabilitation and therapy services to those with cognitive disabilities.
