Have you heard about this young man named Lane Goodwin? Lane is a 13 year old boy currently battling a rare form of childhood cancer, Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. The story, however, isn’t about his cancer, but his fight. On his Facebook page you can find hundreds of pictures of people, celebrities, even “mother nature” giving Lane a big ole thumbs up. This campaign has gone viral over the last week.
Lane posted a picture a while back of himself sitting up in a chair with a beautiful smile and his “Thumbs up”. His positive attitude during something so utterly negative has caught the attention of the nation. Brett Michaels, Anderson Cooper, Turtle Man, Johnny Depp, Garth Brooks, and Trisha Yearwood are just a few who have jumped on board. That’s not to mention the massive amount of “everyday” people posting pictures.
It’s so beautiful how one simple act can move the world. We should all hope to be such an inspiration! So a BIG thumbs up to you and your family, Lane. You are a constant example of what a hero is.
