Mother's Defender
(2008-02-21)
(wgvu) - A 7-year-old Detroit girl who threw herself
across her mother just as a gunman was about to shoot the woman is
recovering from her serious injuries.
Alexis Goggins faces months of physical therapy after sustaining
six gunshot wounds.
She spent more than two months in the hospital and six surgeries
before her recent release and now returns twice a week for therapy.
The young girl lost her right eye and bears a number of scars
from the December 2nd shooting.
Alexis and her family have received more than 200 letters from
well-wishers, from as far away as London.
Supporters have contributed $30,000 to a fund set up for Alexis
through her school.
