Daniel Sanger suffered a heart attack and seizures. At Frederick Memorial Hospital in Maryland, before he lost consciousness, he stated clearly to his doctor and mother that he wanted to live. However, the hospital went with the wishes of his wife and stopped feeding him last Friday.
His mother and brother, Phyllis and Mark Sanger, obtained the assistance of Alliance Defense Fund. With that, the hospital was ordered by the courts to restore water and food until a hearing next Wednesday. Daniel Sanger is now responsive to hospital staff.
The ADF will seek to have his mother and brother named as temporary custodians instead of his wife.
The trial is set for next Wednesday. Let us pray that the mother and brother are named as Sanger's custodians and that legalized starvation is defeated in this matter. By the way - the Terri Schiavo Life and Hope Network did provide assistance to the ADF
