Message for the Snow White Project

In the documentary I have once introduced a Man who was declared comatose but recovered and eventually got back into society.
Mr A clearly remembers hearing his family saying, “He won’t survive.” Around his bed in ICU.

Nurses believed he could hear and understand but just wasn’t able to talk.
They attended him accordingly.
After all, Mr. Snow White woke up!
I’d like to support this project and look forward to seeing many Snow White wake up.
