    I think it's a stillbirth.

    'As healthy and beautiful as ever, proving the naysayers wrong': Mother of Jahi McMath, declared brain dead by doctors two years ago, shares new photo of her 'warrior'


    • Mother of Jahi McMath has posted a new picture of her daughter online
    • Says that she is as 'healthy and as beautiful as ever' proving people wrong
    • The teen suffered a cardiac arrest and has been on life support ever since
    • Doctors say that she is legally dead and applied to turn off the machine
    • But her family won an injunction preventing life support from being turned



    A family who have been fighting to keep their daughter alive on life support after she was declared brain dead two years ago insist she is 'as healthy and beautiful as ever'.
    Jahi McMath's parents shared a new photo of their 15-year-old daughter on Friday, their first update in three months after winning an injunction to keep their daughter alive.
    Jahi from Oakland, California, was undergoing routine surgery when she suffered a cardiac arrest and was placed on life support.
    Three doctors then agreed she was legally dead and applied to turn off her life support machine.

    'Healthy and beautiful as ever': A new picture of Jahi McMath, which her mother posted on Facebook on Friday saying she was as 'healthy and beautiful as ever'

    But her family refused to accept the prognosis and eventually won an injunction preventing the hospital from switching off the ventilator, and transferred the teen to an undisclosed facility in New Jersey willing to keep her alive.
    Her mother Nailah Winkfield, has regularly posted pictures on Facebook showing her daughter's condition.





    And in the first public update in over three months, today Mrs Winkfield posted a picture of her daughter saying she is constantly changing.
    She wrote underneath the image: 'Jahi as healthy and beautiful as ever, proving the naysayers wrong.
    'A fighter, a warrior, a blessed child, Gods got your back little girl, keep fighting.' (sic).

    Jahi received a kiss from her sister in February last year. The family made headlines for months when her family refused to allow her life support systems to be removed, despite medical declarations that the teenager was brain dead

    Jahi's family, including her mom, pictured here in February last year, have also been working on the legal side of the teenager's situation. They have been fighting for the right to submit new evidence that Jahi is alive

    She also thanked everybody who had supported her campaign as she tries to get Jahi moved to another medical facility.
    She added: 'Your testimony will be a great one. Prayers going up from many, all the prayers, good wishes combined with your mothers love for you which is pure and soothing will definitely keep you going. Stay blessed everyone and thank you for your prayers and love.'
    Jahi's case attracted national attention when doctors fought her family in court in a bid to remove her life support.

    The family claims that 15-year-old McMath is responding to her mother's commands, and that she does so in increasing amounts

    The family's attorney, Chris Dolan, argued in court papers filed in 2014 that the teenager was no longer brain dead and showed significant signs of life.
    They maintain she is still alive despite medical opinion to the contrary.
    Mr Dolan has acknowledged that a recovery from brain death would be a medical first however he insists, along with the family, that brain scans show electrical activity and that she responds to verbal commands from her mother.
    Her relatives won a high-profile legal battle to keep their daughter's life support machine turned on at the start of 2014, despite a coroner issuing her death certificate.
    The hospital treating Jahi released her into the care of her mother and other family members who agreed to be 'wholly and exclusively responsible' for the teenager.
    However, lawyers for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, where she underwent the surgery, say the evidence in Jahi's case still supports the determination that she is legally dead.
    The teenager suffered a cardiac arrest following a routine operation to remove
    her tonsils at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, California, in December 2013.
    She was left with brain damage that the hospital said was so severe that she was effectively dead with no chance of survival if a respirator was turned off.
    In January 2014, Children's Hospital Oakland spokesman Sam Singer criticized the family's decision to give Jahi 'nutrients' to maintain her brain at optimum efficiency.
    'This is a deceased young woman,' he told ABC 7.
    'No amount of food, medicine, medical machinery, time or hope is going to bring her back.
    'So it's really wrong and unethical for Mr Dolan to mislead the family and the public that there's any amount of hope or any food that could possibly bring back this deceased young woman.

    Yeah, that last pic especially is not creepy at all (vomit). Who's paying all the medical bills? (or in this case: the electricity bills to keep the pumps going).

    I have a feeling she will be a beating heart cadaver until the mother dies.

    So you can be brain dead, then NOT be brain dead? Nice lip gloss, too. That's a nice touch.

    As long as the heart beats and supplies blood, the body lives.

    As a parent I would die every day I had to see my child like that.
