HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The victim of a car wreck early Thursday morning on Bob Wade Lane, 29-year-old La'Quasha King, is still fighting for her life in Huntsville Hospital. Her family and friends are fighting right alongside her, and decided to hold prayer vigil Sunday night.
"Her smile would light up a room," said King's aunt, Erica Johnson.
Johnson said the vigil they held Sunday night was a testament to how many lives her niece has touched. She said there was such an outpouring of love and support from the community they had to do something.
"We're just keeping her in prayer, keeping her uplifted, and trying to keep her family and friends uplifted as well, because it's definitely hard on everyone," said Johnson.
Known as 'Q' to her family and friends, Johnson said because of who La'Quasha is as a person, they believe she'll pull through.
"She's a fighter, so we know she has it in her to come out of this stronger than she was before," she said.
Johnson said Q would have loved to see the community come together. Her medical situation is day by day, but they hope they'll be able to talk to her again soon.
"She'd appreciate us being out here, and we're just waiting on her to wake up and talk to us tomorrow," said Johnson.
Red Kerusso was the speaker from Life Church Huntsville. He said he hopes the vigil inspired the family to keep believing in Q's recovery.
"It gives them a sense of encouragement, it should inspire them to keep the fight, to stay steady in prayer and to seek God's will throughout everything," he said.
Q's family said there has been some positive signs, but she still remains in critical condition.
