Clearwater, FL ( — Advocates for Terri Schiavo and her family’s efforts to prevent her husband from taking her life have released a new book about the years-long legal battle. They provide a ground-zero view as they worked alongside Bob and Mary Schindler, Terri’s brother and sister and pro-life advocates.

Cheryl Ford and Dr. J.E. Craddock fought furiously for the life of Terri Schiavo as leading activists who worked with the Schindler family conducting research, publishing information and protesting.

Ford is a Registered Nurse who runs her own healthcare company and Craddock is a licensed practicing dentist with interest in forensic analysis of medical records. As concerned citizens, they devoted their time and energy to communicate the value of Terri Schiavo’s life and expose the injustice that led to her death.

Following their hard fought yet unsuccessful battle, the two collaborated to publish a book based on their extensive research and experience that purportedly reveals "new interpretations" of the events surrounding Terri’s collapse.

"Our Fight4Terri introduces the truth behind Terri’s injuries, and the failure of our legal system to protect Terri," Ford’s website states.

"We hope that this book will finally enlighten many to the true FACTS about what happened to Terri," Ford stated in a recent email. "All that we can do now, is to pray that others will never have to experience what Terri went through here in Florida, and help to spread her story so that her death will never be in vain."

The Schindler family was not involved in the writing or publication of this book. Terri’s parents and brother and sister are working on their own manuscript.

You can order the book from Ford’s web site —
