An amazing and inspirational story of hope, against all odds… Danielle Josey Davis had been married only seven months when a devastating motorcycle accident left her husband on life support and in a coma.
Doctors recommended letting Matt Davis die because there was a 90 percent chance he would never wake up, but Danielle told ABC News she decided it just wasn’t time yet. Then, one day, he woke up.
“I’m sure glad I married her,” Matt Davis told ABC News today, though he doesn’t remember Danielle from before the 2010 crash that caused his traumatic brain injury.
Danielle was 24 when the accident happened, and had only started dating Matt, then 23, two months before their wedding.
Matt’s father had died two years before the accident, and his mother was too ill to take care of him, Danielle said. But Danielle made the decision to keep him on life support and eventually fought to get him into rehab and to take him home, moving back into her mother’s house.
“If we’ve got to bring him home, let’s make sure he has the best view in the world,” she remembered telling her mother. “If he’s going to be a body in a bed, let’s give him something to look at.” (then something amazing happened)
Life is filled with challenges and tests, that’s why it’s called life.
We each have something far stronger within us than we ever give ourselves credit for. Faith allows us to look toward that which we cannot see and choose strength to believe in ourselves and that which is hidden.
At any moment everything can change, and instantaneously are faced with our own vulnerabilities and insignificance. But we are all spiritual beings holding within us something called freewill.
We can choose…
What we call life is an assembly of these choices.
