The family of a 15-year old California girl declared brain dead after routine tonsil surgery more than two years ago, releases a new photo.

Jahi Mcmath's family says she is "as healthy and beautiful as ever".

Her mother believes the teen is alive and will eventually come out of her coma.

Over the last two years, Jahi's family has posted videos of what they claim is her moving parts of her body on command.

Her mother fought all attempts by a California hospital to remove her daughter from life support at age 13. Jahi is in an unknown facility.

Her family is still fighting to declare her alive. They've filed a lawsuit to have her death certificate voided.
