For Anissa

This post is cross-posted from Aiming Low as extraordinary traffic slows that site.

Hope for Anissa

Tue, Nov 17, 2009News

As you may have heard, Anissa, our beloved friend and leader here at Aiming Low, suffered a stroke on Tuesday afternoon. She is in the hospital right now, in the ICU.

More than anything, Anissa needs your prayers and positive thoughts but to the many people in the Atlanta area who have offered help to the Mayhew family, we have set up a form for you to fill out so we can have everyone’s contact info in one place (please be assured your information will be kept private).

Things that would be helpful right now are gift cards to restaurants and gift cards to the movies or to Blockbuster (to help keep the kids’ occupied) and gas/hotel gift cards for her extended family. We will be setting up a PO Box on Wednesday and posting the address here along with any updates. Please don’t send anything to the hospital or the Mayhew home. If you have questions, please email

We ask that you please respect the Mayhew family’s privacy by NOT calling the hospital and we thank you all SO MUCH for your outpouring of love and support for Anissa and her family.
With thanks and love,

The Aiming Low Team

Praying for you, babe!

Thank you for the cross-post. I do not live in the area but if there is anything I can do or send from where I am, I would be happy to help out. I just started following her on Twitter and she seems amazing. I am sorry for this and her and her family are in my thoughts and prayers.
