Lane Holden was one of the Ropin’ Dream’s very first children to become part of our program. We were contacted by a wish organization out of Florida who called us and told us they had a little boy who LOVED rodeo and could we help out. Of course, the answer was YES, and thus began our journey with Lane and his family. We met Lane, his parents Danny & April, and little sister Brittany when they flew into San Antonio for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo in February of 2003. Lane had been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and was in the early stages of the disease. We had never heard of this type of MS and that weekend we learned from his parents. It is mostly boys who get this disease and “usually” occurs at an early age(4-5). There is no cure and all Doctors can do is treat the symptoms, normally they do not live past 14 we were told. Lane was a fighter and he lived his life to the fullest; hunting, fishing, spending time with his family and friends. Lane was an overcomer and he will always be an inspiration to everyone he met. Lane was 22 years of age at his passing and he will be missed by all who knew him.
