Stroke victim featured on KPRC 2 walks for J.J. Watt

A local woman who has suffered multiple strokes said J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans gave her inspiration in her recovery.

Nicole Alexander cleared a major hurdle in that recovery by accomplishing a goal she set.

"When I am able to walk, I want to come down on the field and hug you. Sweat and all," Alexander said to KPRC 2's Keith Garvin during a report in May.

Alexander was able to make good on that message for Watt on Saturday before the Texans' preseason game against the Denver Broncos at NRG Stadium.

"This is crazy. Nicole had multiple strokes in her life and doctors told her that she may never talk or walk ever again. She said that her main motivation to fight to be able to walk again was so that she could someday stand up under her own power and walk into NRG Stadium and give me a hug. Well yesterday was that day. Nicoel stood up out of her chair, took a few  steps toward me and gave me a huge hug," Watt wrote in a post on Twitter, along with a picture with Alexander.
