Survivor of Domestic Violence Left Blind After an Acid Attack; Creator & Founder of S.M.O.O.O.T.H., Inc.; Mother of NFL Player DeAndre Hopkins

Sabrina Greenlee is the mother of NFL star DeAndre Hopkins and a survivor of domestic violence. When Hopkins was 12, Greenlee was hit by a mixture of bleach and lye thrown at her by "the other woman" and left for dead by a gas station.

Greenlee is the daughter of an alcoholic father and a mother addicted to crack cocaine. She had been involved in domestically abusive relationships since she was 14. She had married and then divorced her first abuser, but went on to have three other abusive relationships, resulting in her four children.

Greenlee says that after the acid attack she fell into a deep depression and drank heavily for four years until she was exhausted by it all.

Greenlee resolved to break the cycle of abuse and addiction -- and break it she did. She created and founded the non-profit S.M.O.O.O.T.H., Inc., which stands for Speaking Mentally, Outwardly Opening Opportunities Toward Healing. The mission of S.M.O.O.O.T.H. is to educate and empower women, children and families dealing with domestic violence through education, mentoring, counseling, lectures, and outreach activities.

Greenlee has stated that what she is most proud of, though, is having raised her four children to be respectful and that they all went to college.

Today, Greenlee can be found cheering on her son at every one of his NFL games, even though she can't see him. He is known for bringing her the football when he makes a big play.
