In the early part of last December she threw herself across her mother to shield her from the shooter, and in the process, Alexis Goggins was herself shot six times. She took a bullet in one of her eyes, was blinded, and during her hospital stay the eye was removed. Alexis caught the heart of the world, and in a few days a trust fund was established for her. Now, these months later, Alexis has been released from the hospital.

DETROIT — Alexis Goggins climbed aboard a special bicycle and maneuvered through hospital hallways, beginning the months of physical therapy she needs to recover from six gunshot wounds.
To many people, the soft-spoken 7-year-old is a hero after she threw herself across her mother just as a gunman was about to shoot the woman in an SUV.
“An angel is what I call her,” Seliethia Parker said of her daughter.
After more than two months in the hospital and six surgeries, Alexis was recently released. She returns twice a week for physical therapy.
