1991- Timeline

Money remained a problem, especially during the Fall of 1990. Michael was living on Terri's Social Security disability payments, and Bob was working....We were living from paycheck to paycheck....Fund-raisers were held on Terri's behalf, not only by our neighbors but also by Terri's co-workers at Prudential. There were bake sales, a Valentine Day dance in her honor, a Terri Schiavo Day. Over Christmas, a mile-long line of candles placed on sandbags was set up along the seawall, and people could buy the bags....Beyond the formal events, individual donations arrived from dozens of citizens, ... Altogether, some $50,000 was raised, money we used to pay for the plane trip to California, nurses, and other medical expenses. [A Life That Matters, pages 47-48]

Copyright Times Publishing Co. Feb 17, 1991

This city has proclaimed today Terri Schiavo day.

Last year Mrs. Schiavo, 27, suffered a loss of potassium in her body that caused her heart to stop beating and resulted in a coma. She underwent surgery, performed by Dr. Yoshio Hosobuchi of the University of California at San Francisco in December, to implant a stimulator in her brain.

The brain stimulator implant was a success, said her husband, Mike. Mrs. Schiavo is slowly emerging from the coma at the Mediplex Medical Center, a neurological care center in Bradenton, he said. She will undergo at least a year of speech, occupational and physical therapy.

A Feb. 9 Valentine's dance, sponsored by the Vina Del Mar Island Association, raised $1,575 for the Theresa Schiavo Trust Fund.
