13-year old Lane Goodwin was first diagnosed with a rare and aggressive childhood cancer in March of 2010.  He relapsed in July of 2011 and again in May of this year.

This week, his parents, Angie and George Goodwin, found out the cancer had spread to his brain. They brought him home from Vanderbilt Wednesday.

There are a few fundraisers coming up to help support Lane and his family. There will be a pizza buffet at Rockhouse Pizza in Robards on Sunday from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., with 100% of proceeds going to the family.  

There will also be a Fall Festival Fundraiser at the Henderson County Fairgrounds from noon until 4 p.m. on October 20th. 

Activities will include:

Registration for a Porker Run starts at 10:00 a.m. and the first bike is out by 11:00 a.m. It's about a 50-60 mile ride. Prizes will be handed out for Best and Worst hand. $15.00 a rider and $20.00 for couples.

Lots of items will be on display in a silent auction including collectibles to memorabilia.

Fun games for the whole family and inflatables will be available.



A book of hope is being compiled for Lane and his family. The book is called "Thumbs up for Lane"  and the person behind this book is asking all the community near and far to email pictures of them giving Lane a thumbs up. You can email those pictures to thumbsup4lane@yahoo.com.
