• 20 Year Old Autistic Girl in Michigan Medically Kidnapped Over Treatment Disagreement

    Savannah Garcia, or Hannah, as she is known to those who love her, is a fun-loving young lady who is an important part of her community in Traverse City, Michigan. The 20 year old is a regular fixture at her neighborhood ballpark, where she cheers on her favorite players, and she is well-loved by all who know her. She loves her dog, her family and friends, stuffed animals, Frappes, and her fiance. Even though she is autistic, she has been living in an apartment attended by a care team, and has been involved in making many of her own choices. Until September 4, 2015. That was the day that 2 doctors at Munson Medical Center filed a petition to remove Hannah's mother as her guardian and to name a person completely unknown to the family, Stephanie Strehl, as her guardian. She is now a prisoner being held against her will, and the will of her family, at Munson Medical Center. The guardian Stephanie Strehl has forbidden every single one of Hannah's friends to see her. Her family, including her brother and grandparents, aren't allowed to visit her. Her mother has been the only loved one permitted by the new guardian to visit her, for 3 hours per day. At the end of last week, Hannah's sister was granted the privilege of visiting her for up to 1 hour a day. She lives and attends medical school 5 hours round-trip away. Her attorney can see her, IF he notifies them 48 hours in advance, and then he is only allowed 30 minutes. When she goes to the bathroom or takes a shower, she isn't even allowed to shut the door. She isn't permitted to attend meetings where people other than her family are making decisions for her life and future. Therapies that were previously scheduled before her confinement at Munson have allegedly been cancelled, and her caregivers all dismissed. Even the right to receive mail, another right retained by convicted felons, has been taken away from Hannah since around September 21.

It is obvious that the law is being circumvented for the benefit of the doctor and not the patient, i would like to see legislation that no longer allows a doctor to pick who is the child's aide and a board of legal review should look into each of these child kidnappings and automatically cut off all funding to the hospital that is holding the child until the matter is resolved, I feel the word corruption is the problem and cutting off the funds makes the child no longer a comodity and if the hospital feels that the child is being abused, well let them prove it in a court of law with allowing a nother hospital to examine the child and come to their own conclusions in the matter. Michigan has too many quacks

So my guess is that it was done for money, either dollars rolling in through the foster care home, or money from controlling the estate, or both. My guess is if somebody digs up guardianship in probate cases you'd find corruption and abuse galore... You don't know this doctor, Marilyn Conlon, like I do, I worked with her for years. She is dangerous. Google her name. She is responsible for killing someone at the jail. She loves the power. She has narcissic personality disorder. It is all about her. All the time. She thought that a patient like Hannah would not fight back and she just kept raising the bar....Munson should be ashamed for supporting this illegal imprisonment. I'm not surprised though. Munson has gone so far down hill. As long as Munson is being paid that is all they care about....even when illegal things are happening. Now Conlon is moving to Israel with her girlfriend Noma Stewart and her two children, Willow and Hunter. She is running away, out f the country, out of fear of being sued over this. If Hanna's family is going to act...they better act soon. This woman needs to be stopped.
