Michael Schumacher is one of the stories that we will continue to cover on the Gospel Herald because he is an inspiration.  Schumacher has been described as "The Greatest There Is, The Greatest There Was, The Greatest There Ever Will Be," according to KDrama Stars.  Here is the current information about Michael Schumacher's Health update. 

Like Christopher Reeve, Schumacher is a survivor of a terrible accident, and like Reeve, the fact that he is still fighting for life inspires many.  Our most recent report revealed that he often sits a chair in front of the windows of his villa, overlooking on one side the snowy peaks of the Swiss Alps, and on the other the shores of Lake Geneva.  This is part of his Schumacher's physical therapy, which is actually very difficult for someone in his condition. 

Much of his communication with his wife and kids come through his eyes, as they will show tears.  What we didn't report is that he not only cries but makes noises at the sight of his wife, Corrina, and children, Gina Marie and Mick Jr., according to Ecumenical News. 

The editor-in-chief of Motorsport, Albert Sabbatini, states that Schumacher is recovering slowly.  He describes him as "the prisoner of an immobile body", but he is still able to convey a lot of emotions.  His progress is confirmed by Schumacher's manager Sabine Kehm, F1 physician Gerard Salliant, and International Automobile Federation head Jean Todt. 

For those who are unaware of Michael Schumacher's condition, his accident occurred on December 29, 2013 when he was skiing and struck a partially covered rock.  Schumacher then lost control and crashed into another rock, shattering his helmet.   He had a camera attached to his helmet that caught the footage of this collision, and it has been analyzed to show that the injury was indeed an accident.  This accident caused a lot of brain damage as well as a coma that he awoke from on April 4, 2014, a process of reawakening that actually began in January of that year. 

On the one-year anniversary of the accident, CNN reported a simple message for Michael Schumacher: keep fighting.  Schumacher's wife two teenage children chose not to release a statement on the anniversary of his accident on December 29, 2014.  Schumacher's family was the center ring of a media circus, with the report of one journalist disguising himself as a priest to get access to Schumacher's bedside. For the most part, most of the media has chosen not to bother the family in the midst of this very difficult situation. 

Last November, the official Michael Schumacher website was relaunched in order to mark the 20th anniversary of the driver's first world championship.  The site provides visitors a place to send messages to his wife and kids called "How to Wish Michael Well".  Most of the official Michael Schumacher site is devoted to stories of him as a racing legend, but visitors can leave a personalized message by adding a hashtag of #keepfightingmichael to their tweets, which might take a while before it appears on the official site. 

For those who want to send a message to the Schumacher family, feel free to the previously mentioned website and follow the instructions. It seems like more improvements happen weekly to Schumacher's condition, and we'll attempt to keep up with it.
