ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A woman severely injured in a motorcycle accident received a phone call from former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, offering his support and wishing her well.

Savannah Romero and her husband Carlos of Grand Junction were in North Dakota when Savannah was severely injured in the accident in early March, leaving her her in a coma.

She was transferred to Swedish Medical Center for advanced care for a brain injury, 12 broken ribs, blood clots, a bladder infection and MRSA. The die-hard Broncos fans received the surprise call from Manning, KJCT reported.

“Savannah, this is Peyton Manning. Hey, I just wanted to call and tell you that you’re in my thoughts and prayers. … I know you’re going through a tough fight right now,” he said. “Just want you to know that you have me on a list of people pulling for you and praying for you. Appreciate you being a big supporter and fan of mine. That means a lot. Just know that I’m a big fan and I’m pulling for you.”

Carlos Romero believes his wife, the mother of two, was able to partially understand Manning's message.

An update on a GoFundMe page said Savannah Romero is considered to be in a semiconscious state and that she smiled to her husband.

"I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers," Carlos Romero said.
