7 months after Danielle and Matt got married, Matt was involved in an horrific motorcycle accident.
He had attempted to merge onto an interstate and hit an illegally parked vehicle, which sent him flying off of his motorcycle at a high rate of speed. He broke multiple bones, lacerated organs and took heavy trauma to his brain.
When doctors told Danielle that there was nothing else they could do for Matt – she had to make a decision – pull the plug or have faith that he would make it. She chose the latter.
They moved Matt from the hospital to Danielle’s mother’s North Carolina home, where they had the job of caring for Matt 24/7.
But after three years of living on life support in a deep coma and after thousands of prayers from his loving wife, Matt miraculously woke up one day and uttered two words that Danielle will never forget,
“I’m trying,” he said.
Matt has continued to make what doctors describe as “unprecedented” progress in his recovery — one that they originally didn’t think was possible.
