Statement of Jonee Fonseca, Israel Stinson's Mother


ROSEVILLE, Calif., May 11, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is a statement from Jonee Fonseca, Israel Stinson's Mother:

It has been well over a month now that my fiancé and I have been fighting for our two-year-old son Israel's life. Doctors at Kaiser Roseville Medical Center declared Israel "brain dead" after an asthma attack left him unconscious. Israel has been on a ventilator since April 2 and was declared brain dead on April 14—almost a month ago. Within 24 hours of being admitted to Kaiser, the hospital wanted to remove our son from life support. They said Israel would only live for a few days and his heart would soon stop beating. We were prepared to accept his death once his heart stopped. But one month later, Israel has proven the doctors wrong. He is a fighter! CONTINUE
