 Readied To Donate Organs, 21-Year-Old Emerges From Coma

By SUSAN DONALDSON JAMES | Good Morning America – 7 hours ago


  • Sam Schmid, an Arizona college student believed to be brain dead and poised to be an organ donor, miraculously recoveredjust hours before doctors were considering taking him off life support.

Schmid, a junior and business major at the University of Arizona, was critically wounded in an Oct. 19 five-car accident in Tucson.

The 21-year-old’s brain injuries were so severe that the local hospital could not treat him. He was airlifted to the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Phoenix, where specialists performed surgery for a life-threatening aneurysm.

As hospital officials began palliative care and broached the subject of organ donation with his family, Schmid began to respond, holding up two fingers on command. Today he is walking with the aid of a walker, and his speech, although slow, has improved.  Full Story with Video Here

  1. Don’t count anyone out ’til God says it’s time.

  2. God has a plan for this young man…

  3. I believe…for those who can see, that the Lord is showing people who the REAL God is. So many doctors play God. I used to be in the medical field so I know well. Doctors make decisions and do some unnecessary things for both money and the power of it all. I have seen enough to know that there are MANY who are just in it for the money and not the oath…to help people anymore. I have seen more than once when the Lord has tried to show who He was. That HE ALONE is God. This is just another one of those times! Blessed be His Holy Name!

  4. I want to contact this young man. We lost our 21 year old granddaughter to brain cancer October 9, 2011. I have had him on my heart and in my prayers ever since he woke up from the coma. I am so thankful that Sam’s family has him back with them. What a blessing from God. Sam, I am so happy for you. Live your life for the LORD. Take every opportunity to share God’ miracle in your life. If you get the opportunity, watch my granddaughter’s testimony on You Tube. Her name is Lindsey Paxton. You will be blessed. Love Lindsey’ Nanaw.

    • Dear Linda,
      What a powerful and inspiring testimony your lovely granddaughter gave. Thank you for sharing her story. I’m posting it here as a blessing to everyone who comes across this message. May God bless and comfort you until you’re with her again!

    • Lindsey was a very beautiful girl. And brave. Very moving speech.
