Tiffany Morones-Suttle is inside of Levine Children's Hospital with her son. Eleven-year-old Michael attempted suicide because he was being teased and bullied at his school in Raleigh for liking the character My Little Pony.

"I never foresaw any of this happening at all," she said.

Michael told his mom he wanted to handle the problem himself. Today he's fighting for his life with a severe brain injury. She's just happy she still has him.

"I've obviously been through those moments where i didn't think we were going to make it, where I didn't see anything getting better. I work on keeping that to myself because he doesn't need those negative thoughts," she said.

Her son, who was once filled with energy movement, now sits quietly in a hospital bed.

Morones-Suttle came to Levine Children's Hospital because of the rehabilitation resources they have in this facility. She says that while the recovery has been a slow process, it's been worthwhile to see progress, no matter how small it may be.

"When you go from being told that your kid is not going to make it, to now we're in rehab, you latch on to the little things that help you get there. Whether it's an involuntary movement, it's a movement. And you just build from that," Morones-Suttle said.

She's received support from people all over the world who are moved by her son's story. For more information on Michael's condition or to donate to his foundation, visit his website www.michaelmorones.org.
