GROESBECK, Texas — The family of Anniston provided an update to donors on Monday evening.

"Nannie is scheduled for another surgery tomorrow and we ask that you all please pray for her, her parents, her doctors and nurses, and especially for all of the children at Shriner's hospital receiving treatment," the family wrote. "Please lift them all up in prayer for continued healing, strength, bravery, and resilience."

As of Tuesday afternoon, the family has raised over $23,000 of its $30,000 goal.


GROESBECK, Texas — A Central Texas family is collecting funds after a fallen power line on the driveway electrocuted their children.

The family said Anniston Kate, nicknamed "Nannie", was electrocuted Wednesday after spotting a fire outside on their driveway.

Kate reportedly walked outside to find the cause behind the driveway fire and unknowingly grabbed a powerline downed by the recent winter storm.

The family said 'Nannie' was saved by her 10-year-old brother Connor who heard her screaming, ran outside and grabbed her hand.

The family said Connor was electrocuted immediately - resulting in second-degree burns to his hand.

Pulling her off the live wire, the family said their son saved their daughter's life.

"He is our HERO and the reason that Nannie is alive with us today," the family said in a statement.

A GoFundMe has since been launched to help the family with medical expenses as 'Nannie' faces several more weeks of hospitalization.
