It was 8 weeks without food and water that finally ended the life of Trisha Duguay. Her only life support was food and water, just like the rest of us healthy Americans. She didn’t die of the brain cancer that she was admitted to the hospital for, she didn’t die of complications in surgery, she didn’t die because her lungs were to week or her heart couldn’t do its job. She dies because like anyone, she could not live without food and water.
The shocking part of the story is that her family prayed for a miracle, what part of living for 8 weeks without food and water is not miraculous? Even her mother said in an interview before Trisha’s death. “As a person of faith, I definitely acknowledge there could be invisible forces at work,” yet they still refused to give her food and water.
