CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL OAKLAND: Allow a doctor to perform a tracheotomy for breathing and to insert a feeding tube for Jahi McMath.

I am asking all of you who believe in miracles to join me in praying & signing this petition to give Jahi McMath a chance to live. Jahi is a 13 year old little girl who underwent a tonsillectomy at the hospital on Dec. 9 to treat sleep apnea & tragically went into cardiac arrest. 

I don't know her or her family personally, but when I heard her story I was moved to start this petition because she could be anyone's daughter.  Please sign this petition because this tragedy could happen to someone you love.  When it comes to life, it should never matter how much it cost, but that everyone does everything humanly possible to give anyone the chance to live & to allow God to do a miracle.

When I heard Sam Singer, a hospital spokesman, say "A family has lost their young daughter. But unfortunately, Jahi is deceased. No amount of hope, prayer or medical procedures will bring her back", I knew someone had to speak up & say he is wrong about that - God does answer prayers! Nailah Winkfield, Jahi's mother, can attest to that because she said when the judge ordered the hospital to delay removing Jahi's ventilator "the delay was an answer to her prayers and a sign that she was right to keep fighting".   The judge is giving them until January 7th, so there is not much time.   Please help me join her in that fight to save Jahi!
