Subject: [NFBAffiliatePresidents] Ray McGeorge Being Transfered to 

Greetings Friends, as many of you know, Ray McGeorge came down with 
meningitis and was rushed to the hospital on May 9th.  He has been 
unconscious ever since.  Unfortunately, the meningitis caused several 
complications including seizures and a massive stroke.  Ray has been 
relatively stable the last couple of weeks but has shown no signs of 

Ray is a very strong person and very clear about his wishes.  He has an 
advanced directive, also known as a living will.  He has explicitly 
expressed the desire that his life not be extended artificially.  Diane has 
honored Ray's wishes and asked that he be taken off the respirator.  He has 
been off the respirator for limited periods but has always been placed back 
on.  Additionally, this morning Ray is being transfered from Kendrid 
Hospital, which is a long term acute care facility, to St. John's Hospis.

Quite frankly, we do not know specifically what the future holds.  Ray has 
faught this battle as hard as he knows how.  Without the respirator, we do 
not know exactly how Ray will do.  We do know, however, that we are carrying 
out his wishes.  During this very difficult time, we request your continued 
thoughts and prayers.
Scott C. LaBarre, Esq.
