In his Mothers words:
We were so lucky to have but a short time with our sweet son, Lane Kristopher McCloud (July 29, 2012 - July 30, 2012). To best honor his life and make an impact on families in a situation similar to ours, donations can be made to the Zane B. Nelson NICU Memorial Fund, c/o CHH Foundation, 1340 Hal Greer Blvd., Huntington, WV 25701. The Zane B. Nelson fund helps to provide special supplies needed by preemies, as well as comfort items for parents of preemies, and financial assistance to parents who may not have the luxuries of resources or support that we were fortunate to have, while their child is in the NICU.
Please indicate when making your donation that it is in memory of Lane Kristopher McCloud in a note or on the memo line of your check so that we can appropriately thank everyone who donates and so that we can see the positive impact of his short life.
