Newlyweds-Matt and Danielle Davis-GoFundMe

Just seven months after Matt and Danielle Davis got married, Matt crashed his motorcycle and suffered traumatic brain injury that left him in a coma. Nine days after that, doctors told Danielle there was nothing more they could do for him. There was a 90 percent chance Matt would never wake up.

“They said if it was them, they’d pull the plug,” Danielle said. But it wasn’t what she wanted to do, so she took Matt home and cared for him for weeks.

Then, one day, her hope was rewarded. Matt woke up and uttered these words to his wife, “I’m trying.”

Four years later, he’s still trying. Matt’s speech is slurred, he’s missing three years of memories, but he takes yoga and is regaining motor control of his muscles through occupational therapy.

Matt says the whole experience has taught him to never take anything for granted.

A GoFundme account was set up to help Danielle and Matt pay for a full-time caregiver to come to their home, and it has raised nearly $60,000 in a months, since media reports shared their story.
