Friends of Lana Kuykendall, the Greenville woman who was hospitalized with a rare flesh-eating bacteria, are organizing a benefit to raise funds to pay for her medical expenses, WYFF is reporting.
The event is a benefit concert, and is being held at 2 p.m. on June 30 at the Tater Shed amphitheater at Simpsonville City Park.
After giving birth to her babies, Abigail and Ian, Kuykendall was later admitted back into the hospital and diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, a life-threatening condition.
Kuykendall underwent numerous surgeries to stop the spread of the necrotizing fasciitis. Her family say she continues to improve, as she becomes more alert and less dependent on pain medication.
A week ago, she was able to hold her children for the first time since being stricken with the bacteria.
