ABOUT THE SHOW

Every week, The Van Maren Show will try to get a handle on what is really going on in our culture today. It can be difficult to find news sources and storytellers that accurately reflect a Christian, socially conservative, pro-life, pro-family worldview. Join me on Wednesdays as we head to the front lines of the culture war.

Terri Schiavo’s brother shares inside story of their fight to keep her alive

In This Episode

Jonathon Van Maren speaks with Bobby Schindler, brother of Terri Schiavo, on this week’s episode of The Van Maren Show. Schindler advocates for the medically vulnerable and is a full-time advocate, speaker, and writer. He starts the conversation sharing what it was like to grow up with Terri; sharing the real happiness before the tragic story of her death. “Terri was always one that was always laughing in the house, whether it was at my dad’s corny jokes or just whatever.” It wasn’t long after the entire Schindler family relocated to Florida that things started to deteriorate. And then on February 25, 1990, Terri collapsed in her home while alone with Michael and Schindler was called by his father to go check on her. Schindler then shares what was happening in the weeks and months following the initial collapse. Throughout the whole episode, Schindler provides details about each stage of his family's fight to keep Terri alive.
