My brother, Jake Booth, was put into a medically induced coma on February 21, 2016 due to complications with double pneumonia. His heart almost immediately stopped and was dead for roughly 15 minutes before they were able to start his heart again. When they tried to wake him up again several days later they could not and Jake stayed in the coma for another 48 days. Unable to wake him and unable to find any brain activity he was shipped to a hospice. The next day he awoke without warning and we were all witness to a miracle.
Almost immediately upon him going under I began a media campaign called Wake The Jake! His story went viral after waking up and immediately asking for Taco Bell. 1.5 months later he was finally able to get his precious Taco Bell and the story exploded. First at Reddit and went to Playboy, Time, Huffington Post and millions of other websites and blogs.
I handled the entire online presence with a Facebook page, Website, GoFundMe and Twitter accounts. This was basically a 24 hour a day job as he swiftly became a worldwide phenomenon. Roughly 500,000,000 hits later he still receives on average 10-20k hits a day on the website and Facebook page.
