HOLIDAY, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2015):Kids Wish Network (KWN) is proud to recognize Annjela, Krystle, and Nyome Lane as Heroes of the Month. KWN is pleased to pay tribute through its Hero of the Month program to children like the Lane sisters who have overcome difficult circumstances with incredible bravery and strength. KWN is a national charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children having experienced life-altering situations. KWN assists children and their families through several key programs, including its Hero of the Month program which honors children between the ages of 3 and 18 who have faced and overcome life altering situations, often enduring a great deal of pain and suffering in the process. KWN recognizes the incredible bravery and strength that these children demonstrate throughout their recovery and commend their valiant efforts by presenting them with the Hero of the Month award.
KWN and the Fallen Heroes Family Center at Fort Carson, one of KWN’s Hero facilities and who nominated the girls, believe that the Lane sisters couldn’t be more deserving of this accolade.
At ages 9, 10, and 12, Krystle, Annjela, and Nyome experienced the devastating loss of their father, Master General Sergeant Christopher Frank Lane of the United States Army. While deployed overseas, Christopher lost his battle with cancer, leaving behind three young daughters and his wife Abby. The devoted husband and loving father has been described by his family as “the type of dad that everyone wants.” In the Army, he was considered a “wonderful leader who took great care of the soldiers that he worked with.
Faithfully following in their father’s honorable footsteps, Annjela, Krystle, and Nyome’s actions depict the noble qualities that define heroism. They felt honored to be awarded the titles of Heroes by Kids Wish Network through the Hero of the Month program.
“Thank you for all that you do for the children of fallen heroes,” said their mother Abigail.
