"Her mind is fully there," said the baby's mother, Tamiko Dismuke-Howard. "She knows when we are there. I can't give up because she won't give up."
Once upon a time you could go to a doctor and a hospital and count on them to do everything to save a life. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore, and "checkbook euthanasia" seems to be more and more the order of the day. That is something that all of us must do everything possible to reverse!

The five-month-old little girl was diagnosed with leukemia just weeks after her birth. Since then, she's undergone a number of different medical treatments and contracted an infection. Doctors and her parents disagree on what should happen next.
Tamiko picked up a letter from Memorial Hermann Thursday night. It says simply that doctors believe all medical treatment, other than to ease Knya's pain and suffering, would be useless. Her parents have 10 days to find another hospital for Knya or her medical care will stop.
"We will not give up," said Charles Howard, the baby's father. "We are going all the way."
