I didn't even know Michael Schiavo could spell
When I read the short article below, tears came hot and fast to my eyes--the pain of Terri Schindler's death still haunts me, and will likely do so for the rest of my life...
(AP) PUNTA GORDA, FL Suburban Philadelphia native Michael Schiavo is co-writing a book with author Michael Hirsh to tell his side of the end-of-life case that divided much of the country.
Schiavo’s wife, Terri, suffered a brain injury in 1990 that left her in what some doctors called a “persistent vegetative state.” She died March 31st after a bitter court battle between her husband and her parents.
Hirsh expects the 280-page book, “Terri: the Truth,” to be available just before the first anniversary of Terri’s death. Dutton Publishing publicity manager Jean Anne Rose confirms that the company is publishing the book in March.
