 Danielle Davis had been married for only seven months when her husband Matt was involved in a motorcycle crash that left him on life support and in a coma.

Doctors advised Danielle that he would never wake up and suggested pulling the plug.

Danielle had other plans.

“I wanted to give him more time to see if he improved,” she wrote on a GoFundMe page. “We didn’t really have a chance to start our life together, I wasn’t going to give up.”

Matt remained in a coma for three months and eventually was released into Danielle’s care. After many weeks, one day Matt spoke to her.

He said, “I’m trying.”

The couple fought to get him back in rehab, working with physical, speech and occupational therapists. After three months he could: talk, sing, laugh, eat and drink on his own and much more.

But even after that miraculous moment, things got harder for Danielle and Matt.

“He struggles with memory from before the accident. Our relationship, our wedding day, all of that is gone,” Danielle posted.

Three years after the accident, Matt continues to improve, but insurance will no longer pay for therapy. The couple has started a GoFundMe page to raise money.

In a little more than a month, the campaign has raised more than $21,000.
