Please join us in sending love to GENERAL HOSPITAL star Emme Rylan, who is mourning the loss of her sister, Lara. “My beautiful sister Lara is now an angel in heaven, and I know that her precious Riley was waiting for her at the gates,” she shared on Instagram with a photo of her sister, Lara and her dog, Riley, and a childhood pic of Rylan with her siblings.
Back in January of 2019, Rylan opened up about her sister’s battle with stage four cancer and shared a link to a GoFundMe page that the family had set up to help pay for her expenses as the treatments Lara had already undergone had seriously depleted her savings.”I want to thank everyone that donated to her GoFundMe page two years ago,” the actress added. “The money raised made it possible for her to live in comfort in her home and I will be forever grateful for that.”
Rylan’s co-stars and friends flooded her Instagram comments with love and sympathy. “I’m so sorry, Em,” wrote fellow THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS alum Jessica Collins (ex-Avery). “Love to you and your family.” Wes Ramsey (Peter, GH) shared a series of prayer emojis, and Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan, GH) expressed: “I’m so sorry about your loss, Em. Sending you so much love.”
Our hearts go out to Rylan and her entire family during this difficult time.
