People began posting pictures of themselves giving Lane a thumbs up on both Facebook and Twitter (hash tag #ThumbsUpForLane) and it went viral. Not only did folks around the country start lending their support to this young man, but so did celebrities. From the likes of country stars such as Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood to athletes from major sports teams. It puts a big smile on Lane's face and that's what matters most in a dire time like this.

Kevin Alejandro (True Blood, Golden Boy) was one of the latest celebrities to give Lane a thumbs up in support. He posted a picture of himself last night along with "This is for Lane!" He also asked his Golden Boy co-stars, Bonnie Somerville and Holt McCallany to do the same. Bonnie also posted a picture of herself which you can view here.

Each day is a precious gift for Lane as his doctors can no longer treat the cancer that has now taken over his brain. Everyone is praying for a miracle for the boy. You can show your support for young Lane Goodwin by posting a picture of yourself giving him a "thumbs up" on his Facebook Page or on Twitter using hash tag #ThumbsUpForLane.
