Emergency Gofund me for Lana Wood

$38,925 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 574 people in 25 months


I couldn't sleep last night thinking about Lana Wood.

I can hand on heart say that I think Lana is thee most inspirational woman I have met in my life and I admire her greatly for it. She is the epitome of a strong woman. 
But all strong women have weak moments, and Lana is no different.

Lana has been through Bond & Beyond and has been evicted from her home of 7 years and has knowwhere to go.   Lana is currently packing rapidly trying to get her belongings out of the property before the sherrif locks her out. She also does not have the money to put down for another house. This wouldn't be such an issue if Lana lived on her own, but Lana cares for her whole family, including her daughter (who is dealing with serious health issues and is battling with cancer), grandchildren and the many rescues she has.  Everything is on her shoulders at the minute and nobody at Lana's age should be stuck in this position, especially after what she has been through.  The stress of this for her is what worries me more than anything. As a friend I cannot watch her go through this on her own.  She needs our help.

I admire her as a woman,  a mother, a grandmother,  professional &  a survivor of many things. But with that being said it doesn't make her invincable and those of us that care about her need to help our friend in her hour of need. 

I have set the target at $10,000

This is to help Lana out of her current situation and get her in a new home for her and her family. 

Lana is sister of Hollywood Actress Natalie Wood, who famously co-starred with her sister in The Searchers starring John Wayne, and is known for her roles as "Plenty O'Toole" in the James Bond movie "Diamonds Are Forever" starring Sean Connery.

I cannot begin to express how deeply grateful and moved I am by the outpouring of love and generosity!
Every one of you are what's keeping hope alive for me. I've gone from hysterics and deep depression to milder depression and exhaustion. Tears are no longer at the forefront, they are minimized...
I'm still without a place to go, and the rents I'm encountering are about a third higher than what I had been paying. California...
Please keep us in your prayers, and don't forget I haven't met the goal yet.
I've found one doable house, but I still haven't been approved. And I will have to immediately give him the money
April 5th. I will be locked out.
I've learned many lessons through this, and am grateful for them all...
But first...grateful for you!



New update!
My gratitude, shock, amazement and soul searing thanks are I sufficiently expressed with words...
It almost seems unreal or a dream...I don't think I've ever ever, in my entire life felt so cared about and loved...
I seriously didn't think I'd make it through this part of my life. It felt like the end.
You have literally saved a life at a time when my family and I were hopeless..
I will never let any of you down. I promise
God bless and watch over all of you...
With all my heart
I love you all




Dearest Angels! Do you realize I would be living under a bridge if not for all of you!
I finally found some dining room chairs at a thrift shop, got them put under our patched table and two have already broken! I think my boys need to learn to be a bit more gentle with chairs!
I'm so grateful simply to have them and be able to sit at a table to have take out pizza!
I've also spent several days now without crying. Believe me it's a big step.
My osteo and rheumatoid arthritis has escalated to such a point, it's really hard to walk to the handicap cart in the market. But I'm so grateful to be able to buy groceries, it certainly dulls the pain!
Bless you all!

I'm still in dozens of boxes, and trying to get the household set up. Determined to make this a home and not just a shelter. Although a shelter is a great blessing and relief.
I know I've received negative comments as well as the blessings and love which greatly outnumbered the negatives.


Evan went into full cardiac arrest and had no heartbeat for over twenty minutes. She has been intubated and is on life support. Nicholas has been arrested and I now have hysterical children ...I cannot believe all this has happened. I need strong prayers for her and Nick and I need many of them. God grant her a second chance...


To all of you angels...
I never thought I would be planning my daughters funeral. But here I am...in deep desperation and agony.
Evan is brain dead, and I must plan, execute, manage and try to keep the three kids on somewhat of an even keel
They are in deep denial and for myself and her husband, we are in deep depression.
Evan will be laid to rest hopefully this week.
We desperately need monetary contributions along with your love and emotional support.
I am not well nor can I get well
I can only pray that I can do what is needed for the children and eddie while I have time on this earth.
Please help so Evan can have a decent funeral. Nothing fancy. Just basics but done with great love.
Lana Wood

I am sorry to hear you have fallen on hard times. To the ones criticizing Lana about not working, did you hear, and I mean really 'hear' this story. She is 71 years old, and not in good health. Her daughter has cancer, the kids are under age, and the husband works constantly. Don't think in the blink of an eye this cannot happen to you. "There but for the Grace of God, go I".

There are everyday people in much worse straits and homeless, in danger and the elements on the actual street who can't afford a motel room with a bed, bathroom or even food or clothes. No one helps them because they are not a celebrity. IMDB says Lana is currently for 2017 working on 4 films,"Wild Faith" (post-production) playing Opal, "Byer's Bog" in an unnamed role, "Holly, Jingles and Clyde 3D" playing Mrs. Claus , and "The Executive" (filming) playing Margo Steel. In 2018 Lana also will be working in and playing in a movie called "Rachel" playing Rebecca. Unlike many struggling or homeless folks, Lana is getting some jobs and paychecks. I'm a compassionate person but I don't get why we treat celebrities like some special deity or royalty that we worship and treat better and why people and media are donating money and offering to someone who is a stranger to them, to let Lana stay with them in their house (per some comments) when these same people would never donate to or offer to let an everyday person who is also a stranger to them in the same or worse situation to stay with them in their homes.

Lana my prayers are with you daily. I have walked this same path so I understand the feelings. It is a great loss, there's no way around that. What helped me was having dear and practical friends to help with all the details involved in a move. And when I felt most overwhelmed I reminded myself that God is writing the story of my life, I can't control it all. I and many others are praying for you, that you find peace and strength within this very upsetting time. And paying that you and your family land safely in your new home. Blessings and love. ~Marya

How devastating this loss has had to be in your life. We can really only imagine. I hope this small gift helps and hope for better times for you, Lana.
