Welcome to all who have found your way over here from the facebook page, Prayers for Lane Goodwin. For those who just stumbled by here Lane is a thirteen year old, awesome, courageous young man who is fighting cancer. Our family prays for him daily, but we also pray for his family as we know the fear and struggles that his parents and siblings face every day. We would love to be a shoulder to cry on or an open ear to them, and we will if they reach out.
What you are reading is the story of our beautiful daughter Brianna who lost her battle to a brain tumor March 21, 2012. She fought a courageous battle for fifteen months before God took her home. She changed lives here on earth and Angie and I firmly believe that the Brianna Lane continues to mention is our Brianna, still doing God’s great work. I bet she is a beautiful angel.
Brianna used to fix her gaze past our faces and giggle. She could not talk anymore so she could not tell us who or what she was looking at but someone was there. We believe that her own angels were here watching over her.
This blog is a labor of love. We pray that you will stick around and read it and share it with others. We want to let other parents know that they are not alone. When your child is diagnosed with cancer, you feel like you are on an island but you can see the world go on about the daily business at hand. They move quickly and your life feels like slow motion.
I am slowly catching this blog up. I started it many months into Brianna’s treatment and since her passing I have not done a great job of keeping it up. I commit to doing better and being a voice. Please take the time to go back and start from the very beginning. And please, every day, say a prayer for Lane and his family.
Steve, Angie, and Tori McQueen
