May 29, 2016 began with Byron Wilson being a loving husband, father, and son, and it ended with him as a critically injured victim, with his picture being shown all over the news.  Byron was shot three times, while attempting to stop the mass shooter in West Houston on Memorial Drive.
He may very well have prevented more shootings, in effort to stop the shooter and distract him. Unfortunately, now Byron is in the hospital, severely wounded with both legs shot and broken, and the third bullet wound in the shoulder. He has already undergone multiple surgeries and blood transfusions, and he has many more surgeries to go. His road to recovery is very long, and he may not be able to walk again for two years.

Bryon, his 4 year old son, and his wife Kendra need your help. Please donate, any amount helps and please share this far and wide.

Byron's wife, Kendra, is a very dear friend to me. Through our relationship, I quickly was able to call Byron a dear friend as well. They are the most amazing, kind-hearted, loving, and generous people I know. She and Byron are so incredibly dedicated to their family. This little family has been a gift to have in my life. Please help all of them during this grave time of need.

Byron's medical bills are  stacking up very quickly; I know all of us can relate to Byron, whether we have children, a spouse, parents who rely on us, or even all three. Please donate to help this family get through this extremely difficult time.

Hello wonderful supporters,

Last Thursday Byron went in for a 5 hour surgery for this procedure http://www.vashishtaorthopaedics.com/Illizarov.html to help regrow bone in his left leg. His left leg endured the most damage during the shooting. He will have this device for the next 8 months. It requires daily turning of the nuts, so slowly over time the bone will lengthen.

Sunday was his birthday! He is the big 31 now. It was Kendra's birthday on Monday too. I've been spending alot of time with them, helping out as much as I can, every moment is a blessing.

I brought my dog Sugar over, as she loves kids. She quickly became best friends with their son (see photo). It helps when their son starts to feel sad about daddy, he is turning 4 this month so it is still hard for him to understand what's going on.

Thank you all so much for the prayers and continued support! Byron's recovery is still long, slowly but surely we will get there!

Sincerely,

Angie

Hello amazing supporters and members of our community,

Byron's recovery has been going extremely well, he was released from the hospital much sooner than we expected!!! He is extremely happy that most of his surgeries are over now, and he has months of physical therapy ahead of him. His shoulder may very well need surgeries in the future, but for now Byron is recovering at home. He is wheelchair bound for now, but is eager to start his recovery at home and hopes to be able to walk a little by Christmas time.

The Wilson family would like to thank each and every one of you who shared, donated, supported, prayed, hugged, sent cards, and most recently his neighbors who rallied together to help landscape their yard. They are truly and forever grateful for the outpour of love and support.

Byron and his wife Kendra did their first TV interview since everything happened. It makes me so happy as his friend to see him smiling.

The firs thing Byron wanted to do finally being back home was read to his son, and his son was so happy to have him back home :)

Love,

Angie and The Wilsons

Dear amazing supporters and followers,

Byron is recovering well from his most recent surgery on Friday. He asked that I update you all and thank you for the tremendous support and donations.

He is incredibly thankful to be alive and is taking it day by day. He is also thankful to be able to spend time with his family between upcoming surgeries. He knows his road to recovery is very long, but he keeps his spirits high.

His wife Kendra would also like to thank all of you for the continued support and kind words.

We cannot say thank you enough times, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Love,

Angie and The Wilsons
