On Monday, June 8th, Anna suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and was rushed to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo, MI. Doctors were able to successfully clip the aneurysm during surgery on Tuesday.  Anna is currently recovering with the support of the amazing medical team at Bronson and with her husband Mike (Sord) Gard by her side. 

Anna Schmitt, to say the least, is one of a kind! Her zest for life, selflessness, and unwavering love have enhanced the lives of everyone she's met.
