They knew each other just 2 months when they promised to love each other in good times and bad. Afterwards, the groom falls into a coma. The doctors want to turn off his life-support machine. But, then his wife manages to do the impossible.
The 22-year-old Matt Davis and his wife Daniel come from California and are heads over heels in love with each other. The two have met just 8 weeks ago, but decide to get married. Now they have been husband and wife for 7 months and begin to plan their future. But all that is thrown overboard on a hot summer day.
Matt is involved in a serious motorcycle accident. He breaks several bones, injures his internal organs, and even suffers serious brain damage. The doctors frustrate any hope Danielle still possesses. They say he will never wake up and want Danielle to switch off his life support.
But the young woman refuses. “We had had no chance at all to begin our lives together. But I didn’t want to give up,” tells Danielle. Matt lost his father just 2 years before the accident and his mother is too ill to care for him. The newlywed wife takes Matt home and cares for him 24 hours a day. She gives up everything to be with him.
Her unshakable faith and hope is rewarded. After 3 months in a coma, the unthinkable happens: Matt opens his eyes! Danielle notices that he wants to say something so she continues to encourage him. Suddenly Matt wheezes out, “I’m trying!” Danielle can’t believe it: “That was the most beautiful thing I’d ever heard!”
Step by step, Matt fights his way back into life. He learns to speak, to stand and to walk. He still has difficulty remembering certain things before the accident. His relationship with Danielle, their wedding - everything is gone. But Matt is still 100% certain: “I’m so glad that I married Danielle!” For without the unconditional love of his wife, who refused to give up on him, he would not be alive today.
Danielle’s unshakable hope led to a miracle. Even though the doctors had already given up on him, Matt fought his way back to life. If Danielle’s boundless love, that saved her husband from death, also touched you, then share the story of this exceptional pair.
