But once that time came, Booth was all in. His family helped him think outside the bun, getting him eight and a half tacos deep. That's probably not the recommended number of Taco Bell tacos for any human -- particularly after midnight, when they taste best -- but he earned it.

"We’d all been waiting an entire month for him to eat those tacos," Booth's brother, Jason Schwartz, told For the Win
. "It was symbolic of the entire thing — more of a metaphor of him having woken up and being given a second chance at life."
The photos of Booth first made the rounds on Reddit, courtesy of one of his friends. Taco Bell caught wind, and naturally loved the story. They made sure to get some swag sent his way.
Booth, a father of two, is currently in recovery. His friends and family have set up a GoFundMe campaign to help pay his medical expenses, where they've currently raised more than $15,000 of a $50,000 goal.
