The Lane Thomas organization supports families of children in need of life saving organ transplants.
The lighthouse will be installed sometime this summer, in an undisclosed location.

"The Lane Thomas Foundation was created to give honor and light to Lane's life. The foundation is dedicated to supporting families of children needing life-saving organ transplants. To provide continued awareness of the foundation and its mission, we've commissioned an original sculpture of the lighthouse the foundation uses as a symbol of love and hope, to be installed on our property this summer.”
