“I do not consider myself a victim but a survivor, I thank God for a second chance at life and I will live it to glorify Him!”

Indeed, Corey Dooley and his mom, brother and sister are survivors of domestic violence after his mom’s ex-husband ambushed them one night, firing shots into their car.  Four bullets hit Corey’s body, leaving him in a coma for days . . . his hopes for an NFL career in professional football, shattered.
