Tease photo

More than a month after Randy Travis suffered a near fatal stroke in 2013, doctors were not hopeful about his recovery. Complications were piling up, including a collapsed lung and infections, and the country star was in a near comatose state. His doctors told his then-girlfriend that it would be a matter of time before his heart stopped.
