When Richard Marsh had a stroke doctors wanted to switch off his life-support – but he could hear every word but could not tell them he was alive. Now 95% recovered, he recounts his story.

This is just an unbelievable story; one you must read.  He never gave up hope, and he literally came back from the brink of death, a death that might have been at the hands of his doctors pulling the plug.

In one study done in the U.K., it was determined that 43% of patients diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state were misdiagnosed, and another 33% were able to recover while the study was being done.

Makes you think twice about the Terry Schiavo case, doesn’t it?
