Martin Pistorius is a South African man who was diagnosed with a rare form of meningitis at the age of 12, which left him in a vegetative state for nearly a decade.

Despite being unable to communicate or move, Pistorius was eventually able to regain some of his cognitive abilities and is now able to communicate using a computer program that allows him to type out messages.

Pistorius’s story gained international attention when he wrote a memoir, “Ghost Boy,” in which he described his experiences while in a vegetative state and the process of regaining his cognitive abilities.

Before falling ill, Pistorius was a normal, active child who enjoyed playing sports and spending time with his family.

However, at the age of 12 — he suddenly fell ill with a form of meningitis that left him in a vegetative state.

For years, he was unable to communicate or move and was completely reliant on others for his care.
