Torres Baby Dies

Susan Anne Catherine Torres Died at 12:01 am this morning. She had to have an emergency operation this weekend for a perforated intestine. She was 5 weeks old.

Baby Susan was born prematurely at 26 weeks after her mother passed away during pregnancy from brain cancer. Mother Susan was kept alive mechanically to give baby Susan a chance to grow to viability.

Justin Torres' father, Sonny Torres, wrote,"..... She died in her father’s arms.....she fought for every last beat of her little heart. The doctors unhooked her monitors and handed her to Jason and every time he talked to her, her heart would pick up and she wanted to live! But the damage to her organs was past the doctors powers to heal”.

The Torres family would like to thank everyone who prayed for them and those who donated financially.

So far, the Susan Torres Fund has collected $600,000 of the approximately $1 million in medical costs incurred during the pregnancy and when Susan Jr. was in intensive care. To donate to the fund go to http://www.susantorresfund.org/
