Mr. Gary Harvey was in a debilitating home accident that left him with a brain injury. Since 2006, Mrs. Sara Harvey has been in a battle with the state in an effort to be appointed his guardian. Ultimately, the State of New York appointed the Chemung County Department of Social Services to be his guardian. The fight came to ahead in 2009, when the hospital that Mr. Harvey was residing at decided to remove him from life-sustaining treatment. Thankfully for Mr. Harvey, the court presiding over this case denied the request.
Now, Bobby Schindler, the brother of Terri Schiavo and the Executive Director of the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network, has attempted to intervene on behalf Mr. Harvey. Mr. Schindler based his petition on the fact that Mr. Harvey has been denied an attempt to receive care that could improve his condition.
