Wife Refuses to Give Up on Husband in Coma – Then He Wakes Up

Tuesday, 07 April 2015 12:57 PM



Danielle Josey Davis had to make a heart-breaking decision seven months following her wedding. Doctors advised her to let her husband Matt die after a devastating 2010 motorcycle accident left him in a coma and on life support.

Even though Matt had only a 10 percent chance of waking up, she told ABC News that it just wasn't time. Then one day, Matt woke up.

"I'm sure glad I married her," he told ABC News in a recent interview.

Matt's dad was dead and his mom was ill, so there was no one except Danielle to care for him following his accident. After refusing to let him die, she fought to admit Matt to rehab, and then installed him in her mother's home.

Matt began following them with his eyes, then began communicating. Danielle knew that Matt's personality had survived when she asked him what he wanted to eat one day and he replied "buffalo chicken wrap from Cheddar's," which was his favorite food.

Matt still suffers some of the after-effects of his traumatic brain injury. There are big gaps in his memory: He can't remember Danielle before the crash.

Danielle and Matt have gotten to know one another all over again, and enjoy playing scrabble and going to yoga classes together.
