Norfolk State’s Amber Brown comes out of coma

Good news to report on a situation that we first reported on last week. Norfolk State women’s basketball player Amber Brown has come out of her coma, according to her mother.

“I feel like a huge burden has been lifted, a big hurdle has been jumped,” Amber’s mother, Coretta Brown, told ESPN. “She’s still critical, but not day-to-day touch and go, so that has let me breathe again. I am so grateful for what God has done.”

Brown, 19, had been in a medically-induced coma since she was found unresponsive in her dorm room on Jan. 1. She suffered a stroke following a blood sugar spike and went in to cardiac arrest three times.

To the surprise of doctors, Brown woke up on Wednesday. While she still faces a long recovery, her family, as well as the HBCU family, are with her all the way.

“My mom has her daughter back; I have my sister back,” her sister, Ebony said. “We’re preparing ourselves to be there for whatever she needs. She’s going to need 24-hour assistance. But I’d rather have a long road than no road at all.”
