ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The family of an Albany teenager who died on Friday, isn't sure how they'll pay for her funeral.

16-year old Keyanna Lang died from a heart condition.

Due to her illness the family couldn't keep life insurance for her. Her grandmother and her hearing impaired parents are struggling to pay for her burial.

"She got pregnant at 14 and after that she developed heart conditions. She went to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and they immediately transferred her to the children's hospital in Atlanta. The hospital gave her a year to live," said Luci Stevens the grandmother of the deceased teen.

If you would like to donate to the family, you can contact J. L. Litman Memorial Funeral Home.
