Lane’s father told us that while the situation has been hard, he wants to make a positive out of it by sharing with those in need.

“We had such a short time with her and it definitely was a hard time for me and all the hurt that I was feeling, I wanted to make it something positive.”

The family says they truly enjoy the moments they share with the people they are helping.
