Bob and Kaci chat with Cathy Garton, the mother of Mark Garton.

Her son was hit by a drunk driver in 2007.

Mark suffered serious head injuries and doctors said he would not live.

Cathy says they prayed and he is making progress.

Mark was a gifted drummer and his family is trying to help him get back to playing the drums.

Musicians from East Texas are coming together for a benefit to help Mark with his medical expenses.

The event on November 11th will be held at the American Legion building located at 5503 American Legion road in Tyler at 2pm.

They will auction off a signed guitar by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.

A bank account has been set up for Mark at Chase Bank on Broadway in Tyler.
