Three and a half year old Lana Turner was diagnosed neuroblastoma on December 18th. She spent Christmas Day and New Years undergoing Chemotherapy at Scottish Rite hospital in Atlanta. The cancer was in 97% of her bone marrow. She also had two tumors in her lungs. After two rounds of Chemotherapy, the marrow has shown up negative for cancer cells. She still has to have two bone marrow transplants. After a couple of more rounds of chemotherapy treatments, the surgeons will perform an MRI to check the tumors in her lungs. If the tumors shrink, they will operate to remove them.
Over the last month and a half, Lana and her parents have received an overwhelming amount of support from friends and family. Brit wishes to thank everyone for all of their kindness and asks that we keep Lana in our prayers. "She is a fighter," Brit said, "I just want to see her grow up."
