Portland family facing eviction allowed to stay in home

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A Portland family that has two members battling brain tumors is being allowed to stay in their home after all despite being handed an eviction notice.

Melissa Weiser-Lilly told FOX 12 that her family of six was served with a lease termination notice by their apartment complex's management company earlier this year. It was due to issues with cleanliness and damage to their home, she said.

But on Thursday, Weiser-Lilly told FOX 12 the apartment management company agreed to a deal allowing her family to remain in their home. She said an agreement was reached on the condition she pays the rent and utilities on time and allows a monthly walk through of the apartment with an on-site manager.

"I can sleep tonight, finally," she said.

Wieser-Lilly's 11-year-old daughter, Alyssa, has been in and out of the hospital since she was a baby. She was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, went through radiation and chemotherapy, four years of remission and now the tumor is back, Weiser-Lilly said.

To make matters worse, her father was diagnosed with a brain tumor last fall, she said.

Weiser-Lilly's neighbors had been banding together this week in an effort to keep her in their home.

FOX 12 covered Weiser-Lilly's story Wednesday on The 10 O'clock News.
