Brain Death Conflict – Taquisha Desirae McKitty

On September 14, 2017, 27-year old Taquisha Desirae McKitty was brought to Brampton Civic Hospital suffering from a drug overdose. After six days, doctors declared her brain dead despite her family’s wishes.

The family filed an injunction to keep McKitty on organ support. On September 28th, Superior Court Justice M.J. Shaw extended that injunction to October 17th so that the family could obtain a second opinion from another physician. It is unclear that they have obtained such an opinion.
