Goner Message Board / Memphis / Anna Ives on the cover of the CA
Posted: Jun 20, 2008 9:50 am
It's true! In case you don't get the paper, there she is with Senator Bob Corker (shhh)! (actually, the "cover" of the online paper crops out corker and makes the pic all Anna!)

Great story, Anna's on the scene in DC doing a little face-to-face advocacy for Childrens' Hospitals and Le Bonheur. She and the Ives have been through a lot & received a lot of help from these hospitals. Efforts like this hopefully make the politicians realize how funding these projects affect people's lives.

Read the article.

Zac's blog about the trip is here.

I was just in the conveinence store and was looking at the front page going "I KNOW I know that little girl!"
Anna and I had a great conversation at the last in store...I had no idea of all this.
Go Anna and the Ives!

Wow! I had no idea about any of this. Have I had my head up my ass or what?

I'm so glad She's doing better. And clearly she has a promising career ahead of her as a lobbyist.

I'm more concerned about the potential return of her tumor making an encore appearance.
This is potentialy life threatening.
Please assure me that she gets a CAT scan every year Zac!!!
