Corinna Schumacher: ‘Michael is a Fighter’
Posted by Adam
CORINNA Schumacher insists her husband, Michael Schumacher, is a fighter — following a report claiming the Formula One star could remain in a vegetative state for the rest of his life.
Corinna, 44, raises two teenage children with Michael — who suffered injuries to his brain in a ski accident on December 29.
Schumacher’s condition remains stable but there is a firewall of silence from his medical team about the intense battle being waged to try to bring him back to normality.
The family took to Schumacher’s website recently to thank fans for their support.
“We are deeply moved by the fact that the wishes of Michael from around the world still do not tear,” said the statement, which was published in German and translated into English.
“This gives us strength. Thank you all! Many thanks to the Kerpen Fan, 1 FC Köln and Schalke 04, but also all the other people and groups of fans that support us and Michael. We all know he is a fighter and will not give up!
“We are deeply touched by all the messages to get well soon for Michael Which nursing are being sent. That gives us strength. Thank you all so much! Thank you to the fan club in Kerpen, to 1 FC Köln and Schalke 04 so but to everybody else and other fan groups who are supporting Michael. We all know, he is a fighter and will not give up!”
Meanwhile, Corinna is trying to keep things normal for the sake of their kids.
“Corinna is one of the strongest women out there,” a source said.
“She’s amazing: doing her best to be there for Michael, and keeping things relatively normal for their kids.
“Corinna has been Michael’s rock throughout their marriage. This is no different.”
