Gus welcomed Martin Pistorius to the Catholic Channel studios in New York City today for a one-on-one interview about his harrowing ordeal. Martin contracted meningitis as a young boy, which left him in a paralytic, vegetative state for 12 years, completely aware of his surroundings but unable to communicate. Eventually, Martin’s aromatherapist discovered his cognitive abilities and his condition gradually improved (see below for before and after photographs). Martin goes into detail with Gus about how he got through this ordeal. To read Martin Pistorius’ story, click here.
