We want love like this in our lives, and we won’t settle for anything less. We know it’s not easy to find something like this, but Bruna de Sousa did it. Just when everything seemed to be going wrong, her husband was there to help her. All of what he’s done is great!
Because this story was so moving, it quickly went popular on social networks. It’s about a man from Brazil named David César, who has spent many years taking care of his wife, Bruna de Sousa, who is in a vegetative state. Because of this, David lost his job and is now asking for help on social media to pay for all his future bills. This man’s story of love and courage has been told many times on the Internet because he fights so hard for the woman he loves so much.
It was 2018. On a normal day, David César and Bruna de Sousa were watching TV when, all of a sudden, Bruna started shaking because her heart and lungs stopped working. In an interview, David, who is 28 years old, said, “In less than three minutes, she lost all signs of life. We rushed her to the hospital, and after 25 minutes, they were able to bring her back to life, but she had been without air for a long time.
David said that Bruna had a disorder that didn’t affect her nervous system’s basic processes but made it so she couldn’t see what was going on around her. In other words, his wife has lasting effects and is in a vegetative state because of it.
Bruna was in the hospital for almost two years, and since June 2019, David has spent all of his time at home taking care of her. But since he didn’t have a job, he couldn’t meet all of her needs. And yes, she does need help from experts, medicines, food, and other things even though she is at home.
The truth is that David’s salary as a driver wasn’t enough to take care of his wife’s needs. Because of this, he had to start making money.
Even though many kind people helped them out, Bruna’s bills kept going up. David himself said at the time, “We haven’t been able to get her to quit yet. But two lawyers are helping us for free. We live off of what people give us.”
Even though they had been through a lot of hard times, there was still hope. David found out about treatment in Canada because the neurologists told him about it. Bruna would have to take the medicine for three years and do physical treatment on top of it if he could get it. The cost of this choice, though, was around $19,000, so the couple had to raise money through donations again.
Bruna and David’s lives have been different since the day they met. The young man shares some of the memories he has of his time with her on his Instagram account. He also keeps his fans up to date on how his wife is doing.
They are not in an easy position, but David’s great love for Bruna is clear. How many of us can say that we’ve had a couple show us so much love and care? But let’s be honest: how many of us would be willing to do something like that for our partner?
