Tiffaney Moore

Tiffy was misdiagnosed.

The Dr Said she had the flu. I tried to tell them she didn't have flu symptoms. They ignored me and sent her home with narcotics for her severe headache.

She passed out at home the next day. She never regained consciousness. She was found to be brain dead after many tests.

"It was the hardest, saddest day of my life."

Her father and I held her as her heart beat a few minutes after life support was removed. It was the hardest, saddest day of my life.
