Family of Jahi McMath: “She’s Still Alive And Beautiful As Ever”
UPDATE as of October 23, 2015:
The mother of the Oakland, California teen, Jahi McMath, who was declared brain-dead by doctors in December, 2013 showed a picture of her daughter and saying that she’s doing better than ever.
“Hello everyone,” Winkfield wrote in a post at Keep Jahi Mcmath on life support. “As requested here is the latest pic of Jahi. Our little sleeping beauty is doing great and progressing. She is moving more on her mothers command. As you can see she is still alive and just as beautiful as ever. Flawless skin! She will be 15 in a few days.”
In a post Friday, Winkfield listed an updated image of her daughter with braids for her 15th birthday on October 24, 2015.
The family of teen Jahi McMath, who was once ruled as ‘brain dead’, have released videos which they say prove she’s still alive.
In the two clips released on Friday, the 13-year-old is seen lying in her bed at a New Jersey hospital, moving on command.

In one of the two clips shared by the family’s law firm, her mother asks her to move her arm, and the girl’s hand grips an object before relaxing.
McMath’s family have been fighting with the state of California ever since December, when the girl was declared brain-dead following a routine tonsil surgery at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, California.
The family’s attorney, Christopher Dolan, says experts are wiling to testify that Jahi’s MRI shows sign of some brain activity.
Here’s another clip:
“There’s a difference between being brain-damaged and between being brain-dead,” Dolan said. The family will present their case in front of a California judge on October 9.
