It is said that people in a coma can still listen even if their body appears like they are sleeping. Tennessee resident Sharista Giles wanted to prove to doctors who told her family she would never wake up that she still had some fight in her.
Sharista was 20-years-old and 5 months pregnant when she was involved in a severe car accident after driving home from a concert last December. The injuries she suffered left doctors with little hope so they later gave her an emergency c-section in January to help save the baby.
Sharista Giles was involved in a car accident that left her in a coma for over 4 months.
She was also 5 months pregnant at the time but the baby didn’t suffer any injuries; therefore, doctors needed to deliver the baby prematurely.
Four months later, Giles opened her eyes and was welcomed by her family around her. While she didn’t talk, she could respond visually and was responding to touch.
Her baby is now healthy and 6-pounds and her family is confident Giles will make a full recovery.
Such a remarkable story and her family prays for her everyday for a quick recovery. If you would like to donate, please visit her GoFundMe campaign setup by her family or follow her Facebook page for updates.
