The Schindler family gained national and international attention over the course of nearly 20 years as they pursued legal means to preserve the life of their brain injured daughter Terri Schiavo. The battle ended abruptly last March when Terri's feeding tube was removed by court order at the request of her husband Michael and over the objections of the Schindler family, who sought to care for Terri themselves. Through the establishment of the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation, the Schindler family continues to raise awareness and seek humane treatment and respect for the lives of the disabled members of society.
