Doctors Recommended She Pull The Plug On Her Husband. She Refused, And Then He Woke Up
April 7, 2015
Matt and Danielle Davis had been married only seven months when a devastating motorcycle accident left Matt on life support and in a coma.
Given only a 10% chance of waking up, Davis told WTOC that doctors advised her to pull the plug on her husband. She recalled hearing them say, "That's what they'd want their family to do."
Danielle refused to give up on him. "We didn't really have a chance to start our life together, I wasn't going to give up."
Matt spent three months in the coma, and moved from the hospital to their home where Danielle cared for him 24/7.
Then one day, against all odds, Matt said, "I'm trying."
He eventually came out of his coma, but he didn't remember anything that had happened in the last three years. He retained no memory of his father's death, or even meeting and marrying his wife.
But in the time that has passed since the accident, Matt has made amazing progress. Physical therapy has helped him learn to walk again.
They play scrabble and enjoy going to yoga classes together, and he's recently started driving a stick shift car for fun because he loves cars.
"One conversation with Matt will change your life," Danielle shared. "He has a servant's heart and a love for people. He never complains or feels anger about his circumstance. He just wants to make a difference and give hope."
The couple is currently trying to raise funds for Matt to continue his therapy.
