Ethan Hawks Family Ongoing Expenses
Here is what happened...
Ethan's mom was driving him down the 57 freeway on Saturday when a piece of metal of some kind came through the windshield at a high velocity and struck Ethan on the right side of the face and neck. The most serious damage occurred when his carotid artery was severed. He also sustained extensive damage to his jaw and cheek bone. Ethan's mom was amazing in the face of this, and she was able to reach over to the passenger seat to try to control Ethan's bleeding as well as drive him straight to the hospital herself. Her quick thinking certainly saved his life.
Ethan underwent numerous procedures by a variety of doctors to try to help him. He was placed in an induced coma to keep him still and keep his physical functions as calm as possible.
Ethan's dad and sister were in Pennsylvania, but made their way to his side, and the family was all together when Ethan went to be with his Savior. They are also being helped in tremendous ways by Ethan's uncle. It is an amazing family unit that was working to help Ethan!
PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY for Ethan's family. It will be a long haul for them in the coming days, weeks, months and years.
Your donation will certainly help the Hawks family in their time of need! Thank you for your generosity.
NOTE: We have set up a Trust Account for these donations. It is being monitored by Attorney Cara Hagan and we have complete trust in this process for the Hawk family. Cara Hagan is working directly with the family to make sure the funds go to them for their needs.
If you have any questions, feel free to email Herald Athletic Director Rolland Esslinger at Whittier Christian High School.
We are humbled and touched by the overwhelming expression of love, support, and generosity that you have shown our family throughout the injury to, and loss of our Ethan. To know that so many others loved Ethan so deeply is a comfort to us at this time. The love and the prayers showered on us is what's keeping us going. We will never be able to express how grateful we are to each and every one of you, how very thankful we are that God has blessed us with you in our lives, and the thoughtfulness that you have all shown towards us is so appreciated. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
The Hawks Family
In lieu of flowers, the Hawks family would like you to please consider a donation to the PADRE Foundation at www.padrefoundation.org toward children living with Type 1 diabetes.
Thanks again for all of the support and love shown to this amazing family.
Although I do not know the Hawks family, as a mom of a 17 year old football player at Crean Lutheran HS, I feel compelled to extend my deepest condolences to them. My heart breaks with you. We pray that you are comforted in the Lord's unwavering love. I'm so deeply sorry for your loss.❤
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Ethan. I pray that you will find peace and comfort during this very difficult time.
To the family of Ethan... I'm so so sorry to read this, as a mom I can't think of how devistating this is.. I wish you peace and prayers.
Steve, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this difficult time. When I read about Ethan it reminded me so much of you and hope his legacy carries on through this page. There are a lot of people from your past who are thinking of you and your family. Kevin and Anita Robertson

I truly apologize I did not read the update on him. I'm sorry for your loss . Father I pray for his family during this time, that you give them comfort, wrap them around your arms, and give them peace, in Christ Jesus name. Amen. ❤️
Our son Ryan was a Whittier Christian graduate and was in a motor cycle accident in 2010 and had head injuries and was not expected to make it. 21 days in a coma and he started to recover through lots of Prayer by everybody. Our friends helped us survive that time and I wish you the same. If you ever need someone to talk and pray with that's been through this, please feel free to call me anytime day or night. Love, the Stringers
At this time all I can offer are my prayers for this sweet family. I am truly sorry that you have to endure this horrific event. May god watch over all of you. My heart breaks
So sorry for your unthinkable loss. I have two sons and we drive that stretch all the time. Could have been us. Praying for your broken hearts.
Father in the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray for a miracle, I pray for a long abundant life, I pray that he will live and not die, and I pray for peace and comfort for his family at this very moment in the mighty name of Christ Jesus. Amen!
