Help Charles

Update posted by Charles Hawkesworth Jr. On Sep 16, 2012

This goes out to everyone who has been giving; we appreciate you so very much.  You've raised 4000 dollars in a week.  That's insane and amazing.

 

This part is specific to those of you who were able to attend today's fundraiser in Surf City:

 

I wanted to do this at the Brass at the end of the fundraiser but I'm not a strong public speaker but I am a strong public facebooker so here goes: I want to thank everyone who came out, everyone who organized the event, everyone who donated, and the entire community that is Topsail Island. In less than a week you pulled off a miracle and pretty much bitch-slapped the tragedy that happened. I want you all to know that Charles (JR), Brittany, and myself are eternally grateful for you.

Charles made it out of surgery like a champ. He will not require any more surgery and the rest of his face should be healed in about 6 weeks. He is in a lot of pain but we're hoping that becomes less as time goes on.

Thanks again everyone for your support.

Charles' surgery is scheduled for 10:30 tomorrow (9/13) morning. He will require two titanium plates to reconnect his eye socket and cheekbone. His other fractures should be able to heal without more plates or surgery. 

Also the assault charge for the suspect has been increased to a felony.  The hope of true justice in this case seems more  and more likely.

Thank you all for reading and I will update again following his surgery tomorrow.

I know most people have found this fundraiser page from our Facebook group but for those that aren't members there we wanted to give you guys an update.  Charles is in Raleigh for the next few days and will be receiving facial reconstructive surgery on Thurday at UNC CH Medical.  I will post an update on his condition after the surgery.  Also I just wanted to say WOW. Over $2,000 in three days. You people are amazing and I can speak for Charles in saying that we thank you and love you so much.  I also wanted to thank the people who have posted this to reddit as well as the many redditors who have donated.  

As I've said, I'll post an update following surgery on Thursday on his condition.

Jr went to the nose, ear and throat specialist today and the news is not good; he will require surgery at Duke or UNC Chapel Hill for metal plates for the severity of the fractures in his face.  He may also require his jaw wired shut if it does not heal correctly.

We've ridden Island Taxi multiple times and that was a horrific incident. We'd like to support this effort to raise funds.

Dear Charles and family, My husband and I own a beach house on Topsail Island where we spend many peaceful and happy times. We are shocked about what happened to you. We made a donation and hope it will make a difference. Please know we care about you very much and love you and your family, even though we had never met. Please stay strong and know many people love and support you. K and Z

No decent man should have to endure this, especially when trying to earn a living and help people get home safely. Be proud of who you are and don't let this incident keep you from getting back out there and enjoying so much life ahead of you!
