After giving birth to twins at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta Thursday evening and being discharged Lana Kuykendall was admitted to Greenville Memorial Hospital, in her home state of South Carolina, with a wound on her leg.

Friends of Lana say that the wound grew quickly and would not close, those are the symptoms of necrotizing fasciitis.


(Kuykendall) just kept getting worse in front of your eyes. She would just get worse and worse and worse. Every minute it was like she was going down. She was never really able to hold (her babies) and enjoy it’ -Kayla Moon

No one is sure how she contracted the virus.

A fund has been set up at GHS Federal Credit Union to help the family with expenses. The funds name is under” Darren Kuykendall”, Lana Kuykendall’s husband. You can send donations to the credit union at 211 Patewood Drive, Greenville, SC 29615 or call 864-455-7112.
