It may appear that GENERAL HOSPITAL star Emme Rylan (Lulu) shares basically everything with her fans on social media, but as with any person, there is still so much going on that you don’t see on Twitter or Instagram. “Although I share so much of my life with you, there has still been a very private side,” Rylan confided in a recent Instagram post. “My sister, Lara, is battling stage four cancer. My family would be so grateful if you could take a look at her page. Even a dollar helps.”
Lara Behrens’ family has set up a GoFundMe page that details how she learned in October of 2018 that the back pain she had been suffering from was due to a cancerous mass on her sacrum, the bone at the base of the spine just above the tailbone. While exploring alternative options, the current treatments to bring the cancer under control and offer some relief have already depleted Lara’s savings, and she reluctantly allowed her family to set up the page to ask for donations to contribute towards her medical needs and living expenses. After just 20 days, the page was $25,815 towards its goal of $30,000.

Although I share so much of my life with you there has still been a very private side. My sister Lara is battling stage 4 cancer. My family would be so grateful if you could take a look at her page. Even a dollar helps. ❤️https://www.gofundme.com/larabehrens-fight-against-cancer The link is also in my bio.
Some of Rylan’s GH castmates also helped to get the word out. “Hey, beautiful ones,” posted Tamara Braun (Kim). “This is our dear Emme Rylan’s sister, Lara. She is battling stage four cancer. Please visit Emme’s page and click the link in her bio to learn more. I don’t know Lara personally, but she sure does sound like a kind and giving person who could use some help. Any contribution would help. Sending love and gratitude.” Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) also tweeted: “Please read Emme Rylan’s post and if you can spare a bit of healing love wrapped in a donation for her sister, Lara, we who love our Emme would be so grateful.”
Our thoughts are with Rylan’s entire family during this difficult time, and we wish them all the best as Lara continues her treatments and hopefully beats this thing. For more on your favorite GH stars, keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth magazine.
