Update on Jill Finley Story, Coma Survivor

The Melting Pot to Give Free Fondue for a Year

TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the story of an Oklahoma City woman who awoke from a two-week coma with a craving for The Melting Pot, the Tampa-based restaurant is honoring her with free fondue for a year. The Melting Pot will fly Jill Finley and her family to Scottsdale, Ariz., on Thursday, Sept. 20, to receive the gift at its annual meeting.

On May 26, Finley's husband Ryan woke up to find that his wife was not breathing. He administered CPR until paramedics arrived and rushed her to the hospital, but she slipped into a coma. After two weeks with little improvement, Ryan had to make the difficult decision to turn off the life support machines. A few hours after doing so, Jill awoke saying, "Get me out of here." Then she added another request: "Take me to Ted's and take me to The Melting Pot." Following her recovery, Jill has shared her story with national news outlets like The Today Show and CNN.

"Jill's story is such a miracle, the least we could do would be to respond to her request," said Bob Johnston, president of The Melting Pot. "We're humbled to play a small role in creating another opportunity for Jill and Ryan to cherish time together."
