The couple was finally able to return to metro Atlanta Monday night, where they will continue medical treatment. 11Alive's Help Desk arranged to help the Ladners with some of their immediate needs, but they still face many expenses ahead.
To help, the Ladners' friends are hosting two fundraisers at the LongHorn Steakhouse at 2700 Town Center Drive in Kennesaw. The pancake breakfasts and silent auctions will run from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 8. A $20 donation is requested.
