Schiavo Family Launches Radio Program

Terri Schiavo's Family Launches New Radio Program on Protecting the Disabled

The foundation that Terri Schiavo's family created after her death is continuing its efforts to help the elderly and disabled obtain appropriate medical care. It is launching a new radio program on a Tampa station that will be simulcast on the Internet and later expanded to other Florida stations.

The Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation will start the new America's Lifeline program this weekend live from the Tampa studios of Talk Radio 860 WGUL, a Christian station.

Prominent radio health care advocate Cary Hall will co-sponsor the program along with Terri's brother Bobby Schindler and her sister Suzanne Vitadamo, the foundation's directors.

Hall is also the host of a successful radio show called The Health Insurance Advocate which broadcasts from two Midwest stations.

"America's Lifeline is something we've wanted to do for some time," Vitadamo told on Thursday.

I wonder how long it will take the pro-death crowd to demand it be shut down. Also, how long before Michael Schiavo comes out and says the family isn't honoring "Terri's wishes" by creating this radio program.
