Toys Donated In Memory Of Lane Goodwin [PHOTOS]
I think it’s safe to say that people all over the country were extremely touched by the life of Lane Goodwin. We all watched he and his family fight the monster of childhood cancer. We celebrated during the good days and our hearts were broken when he passed away in October.
In lieu of flowers or a balloon release, the family requested sentiments be in the form of gift cards to certain stores. They planned to purchase toys for the children being treated at the Vanderbilt Children’s Oncology Clinic. A few weeks ago… that’s just what they did! There were able to donate over $2600 worth of toys!
Take a look at their shopping trip and all of the toys and joy they delivered to those children!
Here is a caption from the Prayers For Lane Goodwin Facebook Page on the trip:
“Very emotional day yesterday as we went to Vandy to deliver the toys. It’s the 1st time I have been at the hospital since Lane came home on hospice. I didn’t know if I was going to make it in the front door but I pulled it together & we delivered the toys to the child life staff. Had another meltdown when I went in clinic & saw all the wonderful staff that had taken such good care of Lane & us the past 2 1/2 years. Vandy became our 2nd home. There was lots of tears & hugs but the end result will be that lots & lots of kiddo’s fighting this ” monster” will have smiles on their faces as they pick out toys.”
