An 18-year-old was stabbed on the doorstep of his home in Andover Close Uxbridge on Friday (October 20).
Deividas Vyturys was returning home when he was stabbed in the chest and had to be driven to hospital by his mother who had run out to sounds of screaming.
Deividas is now in a stable condition and his mother, Renata Jankutaine spoke to getwestlondon to confirm that he was now able to start walking again.
A spokesman for Metropolitan Police confirmed there no arrests have been made in connection with the incident but investigations are ongoing.
Readers of getwestlondon reacted strongly to the story, wishing Deividas and his family all the best and a speedy recovery.
Deividas's mother thanked readers, saying: "Thank you so much for all the kind words and comments. It's just so shocking to see things like this happening everywhere, even outside your own front door."
The teenager himself took to Facebook to thank the readers for their words.
Some readers like June Chapman, Mareeen O'Connell and Sue Pedroso talked about stricter laws and sentences that would mean anyone in possession of a knife "with no good reason" to be sent to prison.
They also demanded tougher sentences for those convicted of stabbing.
Facebook user Cazzee Rford said: "We can't even be safe on our own doorstep. Makes me sad because if this is how it is now.
"God only knows how bad it will be when our babies are older. Our kids cant play out like the old days and doors cant be left open.
"All due to people using knives and guns."
