Anthony Meindl’s Actor Workshop opened their Atlanta location just a little over a year ago and produced their first Winter Comedy Showcase this past December 2017. The 12 talented actors put on a hilarious show while giving back to one of their very own, Emih Abrahamson. She is a talented Atlanta actor who, a couple months ago, went in for a routine eye exam and was sent to the ER. From there she was sent to get an MRI and was diagnosed with a pseudo Tumor and Arnold Chiari Malformation , a rare brain condition. Although her insurance tried their best to help pay for these pre-surgical hospital visits and tests, she was still left with a lot of bills to cover on her own. Unfortunately, this left Emih in a troubling financial situation for she also had to care for her ill mother who suffers from Post -polio syndrome. Artists for All assisted AMAW in organizing a raffle fundraiser for Emih. Thanks to AMAW, all the performers, their family and friends, and our amazing sponsors/donors, Emih was able to receive the brain surgery this January.
