Support for Susan Torres, Fundraiser at Chevy's
Do you live in the DC area? Or, even if you don’t, c’mon over anyway. . .
Tomorrow, (Wednesday the 29th) Chevy’s Restaurant in Falls Church is hosting a fundraiser for Susan Torres and her baby. Susan is the young pregnant woman who collapsed last month from a cancerous tumor at the base of her brain. She is now brain dead, but doctors at Virginia Hospital Center are trying to keep her body functioning long enough for her baby to reach viability — they hope to make it to mid-July.
Surprisingly, the Washington Post is following the story closely and yesterday published an update, “Weary Father Left To Count the Days.” The sad headline nearly says it all . . . all except that the baby continues to grow, and on Thursday, the family saw it kicking on a sonogram.
Susan’s husband, Jason, and their two-year-old son, Peter, do need help. Keep them in your prayers, and, if you can, come to Chevy’s on Wednesday. The fundraising event is organized by Preemies Today and 20% of your bill will go to the Susan Torres Fund, if you mention either Susan Torres or Preemies Today any time between 3 o’clock and closing.
