I just returned from Canada to some bad news.
Many of you that have frequented TW for the last few years may know "Jamie".
She's the cute little purple haired girl that used to work the Jerome Russell booth, some just know her as the "Glitter Chick".
She worked the Haunt Tour that Eleventh Hour had years ago and has guest acted at Dream Reapers the last couple years.
She's been my actor/coordinator for the last 6 years.

She suffered a brain aneurysm Tuesday and had emergency brain surgery.
She has been in a comma since the surgery.

Jamie is the type of person that never met a stranger. Everyone that has met her just loves her.
She is such a bundle of energy that it is extremely difficult to she her like this.
She LOVES the Haunt industry. And knows a lot of people in it.

If you can just take a few minutes from your day and pass a little positive energy her way... it sure couldn't hurt.

Satistics for ruptured brain aneurysms are pretty grim, but Jamie is a real fighter!!
We had to restrict visitors to the hospital because of the number of cast members and friends that have tried to visit.
The more prayers and positive energy we can send her the better her chances will be.

If anyone wishes to send a get well card just send it to me and I'll take it to the hospital.
You can mail it to:
Jamie Ballard
c/o1817 Hermitage Dr.
Las Vegas, NV 89108

I'll try and post updates on her condition as it hopefully improves.

Hopefully it is a medically induced comma. She HAS to come back. I watched her act around the tour at 11th hour so many years ago and she was captivating.

Nothing but good thoughts from here.

Hopefully her energy and enthusiasm will help pull her through this. I find that people with so much positive "lifeforce" often defeat these kind of hardships, and look forward to hearing about her recovery. Our thoughts are with her and everyone who knows here.

Jamie is such a doll.

Not that I don't enjoy seeing Rich at the trade show....but when I see Jamie's purple hair bopping down the aisle...well, you just have to smile.

All of us at Creative Visions that have hung out, partied, talked (or nervously flirted) with her over the years, wish her the best and are praying for a fast and full recovery.
