Chi Cheng (DEFTONES) slowly emerging from coma

Quote:
After over three years in a coma, Chi Cheng is now beginning to emerge from an unconscious to partially conscious state. Cheng is now able to move his leg when commanded but is still otherwise unable to move or speak aside from being able to make grunting noises since October. Those looking to see Cheng's Progress can check out the official website for his recovery fund.

Cheng was injured in a car accident in late 2008 which left him comatose and requiring surgery to remove part of his brain. Seven months after the accident, he was no longer on life support. Two years later, Cheng Began to briefly emerge from his coma in short intervals. More than a year later, Cheng is able to respond to commands more often and now has the use of his legs.

Even after a benefit concert and single, Cheng's family is running out of money. The family only has $17,495 our of the $250,000 that they need to hopefully give Chi Cheng a full recovery.

Cheng recently underwent surgery earlier this month, after which he showed signs of improvement. His recovery has been incredibly slow but he has shown steady improvement over the course of the past two years.

That's really good news. I really am hoping he pulls through it, it's been a hell of a ride for him and all his family/friends. That really sucks about the money situation though. I wish them the best.

Good news.


I just wonder what will happen if he ever comes fully out of it?

Chances are he will spend years in recovery to try to live a normal life. I doubt he would ever be able to pick up an instrument again.

Yeah this, I really don't expect him to ever be in Deftones again.

Great news! I hope he continues to get better and gets out of his comatose state sometime in the near future.

Well obviously, but one could hope. With that said, Sergio's a great bassist.


Also if he wakes up they need to release Eros, or release it and give all the proceeds to Chi's family. But that's way too obvious.
