In an article about the latest earthquake to strike Mexico, I read that a rescuer said to someone in a gurney, "Fight for your life, please!"

I've seen similar things in TV shows and movies where a character is in a coma or seriously injured or ill.

But how much—if anything—can mentally "fighting" a coma, injury, or illness do?
