Martin Pistorious from the UK was just 12-years-old when he became very sick and doctors diagnosed him with Cryptococci Meningitis. He eventually became more and more ill: He lost the ability to move, make eye contact and even speak. His doctors told Martin’s parents to take him home as he would eventually die, calling him a “vegetable”.
His loving parents did bring him home and cared for him. But he didn’t pass away even though he didn’t show any signs of improvement for over a decade. But eventually the unbelievable happened: He woke up.
