Kate Adamson joins the fight to save Terri Schiavo from a court-ordered starvation by sharing her unique experience
Kate Adamson, award winning author and disability rights activist, by request of the Schindler family, has launched a campaign to save Terri Schiavo from starvation.
Like Terri, the doctors felt that Kate was someone who should not or could not be saved. Kate suffered a catastrophic brain stem stroke and was dependent on a feeding tube for all her nourishment. Kate had her feeding tube turned off for over a week.
Now fully functional except for some paralysis on the left side of her body, Kate is in the unique position of knowing what it is like to be starved. She is hopeful that her story will get people to stop before they sign on to the idea that Terri Schiavo should be starved to death. Unlike Michael Schiavo who is trying to have his wife starved to death, Kate's husband Steve fought to save her life.
