Chi Cheng (Deftones) Able to Lift His Legs as He Emerges from Coma
 
Chi Cheng (Deftones) can now lift his legs on request. Cheng was injured in a car accident in 2008 which left him comatose and required surgery to remove portions of his brain. Seven months after the accident, he was no longer on life support, and two years later, he began to emerge from his coma in short intervals.

Still got a long road ahead but it's phenomenal that he's made it this far. I wish him nothing but the best in his continued recovery.

Amazing. Not a Deftones fan in the least, but this thread needs a billion positive responses to account for all the shit in the past day.

Wow, I've been a Deftones fan for years and this really hits my heart. 4 years in a coma is some crazy shit! Good for Chi and his family to keep fighting.

Fantastic news!

This is awesome news! Good for him; hopefully he'll have a full recovery within a few years.

whiterussian 02/08/12 10:23 AM

It's been a slow, but positive recovery.

Still a lot of money needed, such a bummer on that account.

Matt Chylak 02/08/12 10:29 AM

wonderful news. keep fighting

seanthethief 02/08/12 10:32 AM

I hope for two things 1) that he fully recovers and 2) we finally get to hear the record they made before he was injured. There is an unreleased record out there right?

centennial. 02/08/12 10:33 AM

slow but sure

keep fighting chi, we always wait for you to come back
