Statement From Jahi’s Attorney, Chris Dolan
Jan 1. (4:20p ET) – We continue to seek a tracheostomy procedure for Jahi McMath before she departs for or upon arrival in New York. However, many surgeons and hospital administrators are on holiday making our goal difficult to reach. If Children’s Hospital Oakland would perform the procedure we could quickly move Jahi to a facility that provides innovative world-class treatments, of the type being given to Prime Minister Sharon in Israel.
Amazing research opportunities exist but Children’s Hospital Oakland holds the key to Jahi’s death sentence – a simple tracheostomy procedure, despite a mother’s plea and the money to pay for it. Instead they starve her. Our plea is for a courageous ENT specialist physician to step forth and give this mother the choice and this child a chance.
