Shitty Day…..Shitty Week

Where to start…. Lane Goodwin is Home on Hospice.

Those of you who know Ralph and I personally know that we are big supporters/activist for childhood Cancer. We have watched countless kids lose their fight to this Asshole Monster! A few in particular…Ronan, Ethan and now Lane. Ralph and I have been following Lane’s story for almost 2 years. A child fighting to be a KID for the past two+ years to a stage IV monster called Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. As of Dec. 15, 2010 Lane has completed 28 treatments of Radiation & 41 weeks of Chemo. As of December 30, 2010 Lane's scans were clear….came back again, cleared now back…..So aggressive that it is now in his brain.  Unless God is going to perform an earthly miracle for Lane he is going to die. There are a million and one things wrong with this.
I’m trying to find an outlet so I won’t be consumed by this anger…Anger that seems to creep up in every corner. When I sign on Facebook and read countless posts about Kids driving their parent’s nuts and how they need a glass of wine. Really. This momma would spend the rest of her life enjoying her child driving her nuts…instead she is going to watch him die. Or the fact that there is Pink everywhere…Its SEPTEMBER its CHILDHOOD Cancer Awareness Month…We haven’t moved on to {Pink} Breast Cancer awareness. Where is the Gold! Who is going to be the voice for these children?

I could list about a hundred reason off the top of my head but I know that will leave me enraged…but 2.4 billion dollars to explore Mars…..are you fucking kidding me. 2.4 BILLION dollars! Do you know how many kids that would save or how much research could be done to find a cure with 2.4 Billion Dollars!!!
very 3 months for the next 5 years.
On July 22, 2011 we were given the worse news possible. Lane has relapsed & has a tumor in his neck & left leg. On August 11, 2011 his PET scan showed that he now has 13 tumors in his bones. He has chosen to fight & we will do whatever we have to in order to save our sons life!!
Lane again relapsed on May 8, 2012. Please pray as he battles this "monster" for the 3rd Time!

Miracles happen and he has to be one of them!!!

 Who can ignore the facts that come along with childhood cancer and decide that it is o.k. to look the other way?

§  Cancer is the number one cause of non-accidental death in children

§  At present childhood cancer cannot be prevented and occurs regularly and randomly, sparing no ethnic group, socioeconomic or geographic class

§  Approximately 46 U.S. children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer every single day

§  For every six research dollars per patient with AIDS and every one research dollar per patient with breast cancer, a child with cancer receives only 30 cents.

Lane has a little brother…His little brother is slowly watching his big brother die! How can anyone look the other way and not want to do something…anything.

Tips for the Fucking Idiots on Facebook:

When a child is Dying…Do NOT comment, send an e-mail or contact his/her parents saying “he is better off with God” There is no other place he/she should be other than Home, with his/her family. You are not making anyone feel better by saying such things “Don’t keep him alive for yourself.” Are you serious?? Who in their right mind would let their child suffer for their own benefit?? They are doing what’s right for their child…unless you are going to offer pure Love go get lost or perhaps go fund the 2.4 billion dollar project to mars, you asshole!

There is good...once you weed out the few idiots.

 Through it all...Lane's Journey has opened up the true meaning of Kindness. Strangers from all over the globe have done some remarkable things....People have opened up vacation homes so the Goodwin family could take Lane on all the trips he desired. People gave up flyer miles, hotel rooms, money, gifts.... all to put a smile on this boys face. Heartwarming.
Through everything; Lane has had a Smile on his Face, his parents with such Grace have openly shared their son with all of us. With an unwavering faith, Lane has been saying he is ready. God is walking him through this and he will go when He is ready.

Please go to “Prayers for Lane Goodwin” and give LOVE or a Thumbs Up.  Lift this family up as they are living a real life nightmare! Thank you :o)
