A member of the famous Texas A&M Wrecking crew is fighting for his life.

Patrick "Shorty" Henry suffered a stroke on October 3rd. He's been in a coma in the intensive care unit at the College Station Medical Center since.

Shorty has had two brain surgeries to stop bleeding and was in a medically induced coma. Now, friends and family are taking turns talking to Shorty, waiting for him to wake up.

"Keep your prayers coming. God works miracles," says Jennifer McGrath, Patrick's wife.

"We have faith and we need him back. His babies need him."

Patrick and Jennifer have five month old twins and no medical insurance. Former teammates and friends have set up several ways that you can help out.

There are several ways to donate.

There is a paypal account set up. You can find the information and link to PayPal on the Patrick "Shorty" Henry blog link below this article.
