- After being in the Intensive Care Unit at Memorial Hermann, Hawkins was moved to TIRR and is now in the gym for rehabilitation every day.
- Hawkins’ mother is hopeful for the best. Although it may be hard, her faith never wavered.
- “It’s difficult, but with my faith, I believe that God is going to bring us through,” Wade said. “God has already given us so many victories. Everyday. We have a victory every day, so that’s what I’m standing on. My belief in God.”
Wade is holding a prayer rally in the same field her son was injured weeks before. She is asking friends, family, and strangers to come out Friday from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m. to Austin High School, 3434 Pheasant Creek Drive in Sugar Land.
