One year after losing his battle to cancer, Lane Goodwin's family continue to give 'thumbs up'

Posted: Updated:

The legacy of a young cancer victim is stronger than ever one year after his passing.

Lane Goodwin died a year ago, but his 'thumbs up' campaign continues to inspire and improve the lives of young and old cancer victims.

Lane's family held a vigil on Thursday night, exclusive only to family members, in remembrance of Lane.  

His mission of finding a cure continues on.

Even on his toughest days, his parents Angie and George say he was rarely without a smile.

"We're the most blessed family on the planet," said George.

Lane loved family and others. He made it his mission to help other kids fighting cancer as well.

The Goodwins started the Thumbs Up for Lane Goodwin Childhood Cancer Foundation after asking his parents to continue spreading awareness.

Since Lane's passing there have been concerts, golf tournaments, and 5K runs which all raised a lot of money and cancer awareness.

During the one year anniversary of Lane's death family and friends gathered to send up a signal to Lane and the world that this family isn't giving up.
