For Anissa, Too...

From The Broke Socialite: The post below is a reprint from the ladies at Aiming Low blog. Our mutual friend, Anissa Mayhew, a fellow blogger (that's her on the left), suffered a stroke last evening. Versus writing a lifestyle-centric post today, I was led to bring awareness to this unfortunate situation.  If you are inclined to pray, please do so. There is also information to assist Anissa's family (which recently moved here to Atlanta).  Anissa and I were scheduled to be together (tonight at The Rockettes show at The Fox here in town and this weekend on a bloggers Disney cruise) for the next few days and I'm certainly going to miss her. My faith, though, has me know that she's going to be alright. I'll miss you, Anissa but will (gasp!) take a photo of me in my bathing suit in your honor. (But you know I'll be wearing a sarong, right?)

From the Aiming Low Team (below):
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


  1. My thoughts and prayers are definitely with her and her family & friends during this difficult. I know YOU know God to be a healer, because He has healed your mom. I link my faith with yours and pray God's healing hand over her body, God's peace over her family and kids, and God's blessings on those who support them during this time. God is more than able. And anything we ask in His name that is in line with His will, His word declares He will do it. Stand on that.


  2. So sorry. Sending thoughts and care from Califoria.

  3. Praying for her and also you as her friend.

  4. Anissa and her family are definitely in my prayers. Thank you for passing along the info. Enjoy your cruise!
