Anderson’s friend Betty Carrigan set up the fundraiser last summer, after Anderson was admitted to the hospital. What started as a routine procedure, ultimately showed that Anderson’s heart wasn’t pumping enough blood.
The campaign has raised more than $41,000 to date to help him and his family with medical bills, although the goal is set at $100,000.
“There are several other out of pocket costs that his family will experience throughout this journey, and your financial assistance is certainly appreciated,” the page reads.
Anderson and his wife, Felicia, have four kids. According to the GoFundMe page, Anderson works as a Manager of Employee Recognition at Delta.
An update posted Thursday said Anderson is resting comfortably at Emory's cardiac intensive care unit with his new heart beating strong.
