From Matt Norlander of CBSSports.com:  “Lane Goodwin is a 13-year-old Kentucky boy who is dying of cancer. It’s unbearably sad, and even researching his story for this post welled me up.  The good that has come out of Lane’s situation is the Thumbs Up for Lane campaign, which has brought a lot of attention to children’s cancer. The boy’s dire situation has catalyzed a movement that has gone global.  If you’re unfamiliar with the Thumbs Up for Lane campaign, find out more here. And know that everyone from musicians to Louisville players to people filling churches to teams still in the Major League Baseball playoffs are supporting Lane in myriad ways. It’s inspiration bordering on positive mania. If this kind of goodwill could fight cancer, we’d never lose another child to the disease.”
