Michael Schumacher has improved with time and I believe he should have been given at least a year to recover. He deserved to live however much it cost daily.

If Archie saw how hard his mum fought for him, for how long she fought against all the odds, he would be proud.

Unfortunately this is all about money nothing more . Live is worthless in the UK but the ppl who attempted to run this country waste billions every year on themselves

Anthea De Villiers August 6, 2022 - 4:58 PM

My heart goes out to her 😪 …. but it is the right decision

Big Gucci August 6, 2022 - 4:58 PM

Your heart and gut means nothing against reality. It’s borderline torture keeping that poor boy alive. Not a single person EVER has recovered from brain necrosis, brain tissue found in the spine, etc. It’s sad and horrific, but it has gotten to a point where she is attention seeking or absolutely blind to reality.

Ana August 6, 2022 - 4:58 PM

They lived in hope but that miracle never happened.

I feel for the parents I really do, But there are times in your life where just have to accept the truth and stop being in denial and do the right thing and let go.
