In 2010, Matt and Danielle Davis had been married for only seven months when Matt was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, leaving him in a coma and on life support.
The crash left him with a severe traumatic brain injury and he was put on life support. He was told that there was a 90 percent chance he might never wake up from his coma by his young bride.
Her doctors recommended that she remove her young husband from live support.
“They said if it was them, they would pull the plug. “That’s what their families would want,” Danielle Davis told WTOC.
“I knew God could get us through it. “I didn’t think it was too big for God,” she said.
Danielle took care of Matt after the hospital sent him home.
She wrote on a GoFundMe page, “Feeding tubes, adult briefs, sponge baths, over 20 medications, physical therapy, turning him every two hours to prevent bed sores, etc.”.
For three months, he was in a coma.
One day, he spoke.
Danielle Davis told a Georgia television station, “He said ‘I’m trying’.”
She recalled on the GoFundMe page that it was the “greatest thing” she had ever heard.
When Matt awoke, he couldn’t remember the past three years, including his marriage and the death of his father.
“I didn’t know my dad was ᴅᴇᴀᴅ. I didn’t realize I was married. I didn’t know anything,” he told the TV station.
But in the time that has passed since the ᴄʀᴀsʜ, Danielle Davis said her husband has made incredible progress and is no longer on medications today.
Matt Davis has been in a rehabilitation program and has made “drastic” progress in learning to walk again, Danielle Davis wrote on the GoFundMe page.
The man is struggling to regain his long-term memory and cannot recall Danielle from before the ᴄʀᴀsʜ.
Even if Matt Davis does not remember dating or marrying his wife, he said in an interview with ABC News that he was “sure glad I married her.”
Danielle Davis started the GoFundMe account to cover her husband’s rehabilitation costs so he can “reach his full potential.”
