KLTV posted this story Saturday after Officer Thompson was hit by a SUV!
According to Jessica Pebsworth, Public Relations Specialist for the Lufkin Police Department, Officer Thompson is continuing his recovery in Tyler. He said he knows what an amazing community this is from the support his family received following his cancer diagnosis in 2017 and its return in 2018, followed shortly thereafter by a diagnosis of stage 4 breast cancer for his wife Hannah last year. She continues her fight today.
Officer Thompson said he wants to thank everyone for their support and prayers and released the following statement on his Facebook page:
“For whatever reason God wasn’t ready to call me home yesterday. I didn’t sleep a whole lot last night. They said it was a Toyota SUV that hit me, but I’m not so sure it wasn’t a Mack truck. LOL! Anyway, being up all night allowed me to see every post, comment, like, and text. Each one brought tears to my eyes. The amount of support my family and I have received throughout everything from family, friends, and our community has been truly overwhelming! I’m sorry I can’t respond to everything sent to me but I promise I see or hear them all and each prayer is felt! How great is our God!”
