The entire nation was captivated and joined support for Lane Goodwin during his fight with cancer. I think it's safe to say that the Tri-State really took Lane and his family in during their journey and felt like we'd lost one of our own when he passed.

Recently, Lane's mother, Angie, and the Foundation received a national award, the 2014 Eagle Rare Life Award, in which they were awarded $40,000!
