Soon after Lana had an abdominal port surgically implanted to begin IP chemo. Due to side effects and complications, Lana was at that point unable to work and lost her job. With bills pouring in, her two sons in High School and only 1 income, the financial struggle began for the entire family. Lana applied for Social Security Disability and for whatever reason was denied. Day after day Lana’s treatments worsened and they became unbearable to the point where doctors had to stop treatment. At the same time due to the side effects from her treatment and complications Lana was hospitalized for 12 days at the beginning of the year with a staph infection, swelling in her feet, lower legs and abdomen. Her cognitive abilities were diminished for days and the doctors were worried. They decided to undergo yet another surgery to remove Lana’s chemo port and surgically implant 2 drains in her abdomen to help get rid of all the infection in her body.
While home recovering from the hospital Lana and her family are faced with even more financial difficulties. They are now facing eviction from their home, the electricity was turned off for a short time and the internet and TV service has been shut off. Meanwhile doctors have recently found a new chemotherapy treatment for Lana and her body seems to be handling it for the moment. This new treatment is now causing uncontrollable shaking in her hands, muscle spasms, weakness and brain laps. The day-to-day struggle for Lana, Dan and the boys is real and they can’t continue this road alone.
