Virginia family gets reprieve to stop hospital from taking 2-year-old off life support
The family of a Virginia toddler has more time to seek another hospital for their child after a judge’s ruling Tuesday that she cannot be removed from life support for at least another 10 days.
Patrick and Alison Lawson are in a dispute with Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Health System over performing a brain apnea test on their two-year-old daughter Mirranda Grace and withdrawing her life support, in another case involving the legal definition of brain death.
