More than two years had passed since seven-time Formula One (F1) world champion Michael Schumacher had his skiing accident in the French Alps. Family and friends might still be unsure if a recovery is possible, despite the expensive round-the-clock hospice care being given to Schumacher.

Recently, a report was published by News Everyday stating that Schumacher’s health condition had even got worst. A reliable source, who believed to be a neurosurgeon, revealed that only a miracle can save Schumacher.

The recent report challenged the statements made by Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm, who revealed that the F1 legend “making progress.” In February, Kehm spoke about Schumacher prior to the opening of an exhibition event in Marburg, Germany. She reminded everyone how successful Schumacher was during his F1 stint. Kehm also urged the fans to stay in the fight for their F1 icon.

“We must accept it and hope with everything we have that with continued support and patience, he will one day be back with us,” Kehm was quoted as saying in an article by The Telegraph. “Racing was his life and no one would have liked to have been here more than him.”

In December 2013, Schumacher fell and hit his head while on a skiing trip with his family in Meribel. He was taken to Grenoble Hospital where he received immediate brain surgery due to the trauma brought about by the accident. He spent six months in a medically-induced coma. He was transferred to a medical facility in Lausanne after waking up from the coma to undergo a rehabilitation program.

Schumacher continues his therapy at his Lake Geneva mansion. There are very little public announcements about Schumacher’s condition as a request of his family. Despite the scarcity of updates and even some news outlets giving false hopes, fans are still not giving up and losing hope that the F1 icon will be able to fully recover from the injuries of the accident. The hashtags #KeepFightingMichael and #ForzaMichael continues to trend on Twitter to show the undying support and love of not only fans but also fellow F1 racers for Schumacher.
