Brain-dead woman gives birth - I've been checking up on this story for several months now. Susan Torres was only a little bit older than me, and she suffered a stroke due to metastatic melanoma to the brain. The stroke left her brain-dead...and 17 weeks pregnant. She's been on life support since the beginning of May in an attempt to give the baby enough time to have a chance of survival. They delivered a baby girl yesterday morning. I hope she makes it...her mom and dad and all the doctors fought hard just for her to get here.
