The Story

On February 5, 2018 Kiley Terrell Lane tested positive for the Hantavirus, a rare and very serious illness.  Kiley was airlifted from her home in Farmington, New Mexico and flown to UNM Hospital in Albuquerque where she recieved specialized treatment at one of the leading medical institutions familiar with Hantavirus. 

Through your generous support, funds raised on this site will go toward unanticipated expenses, incidentals, and support for the family in the wake of such heartbreaking loss.

Kiley's family continues to want to build awareness about Hantavirus and elevate the conversation around this serious illness.  The family is hopeful more research and funding will be directed toward finding a cure for and treating Hantavirus. 

Please share Kiley's story with others.  Ask questions about Hantavirus. Continue the dialogue about this terrible virus which is feared to be more prevalant than fully understood. If one person is tested early and avoids the pain and agony Kiley endured, it is a life positvely impacted. If doctors are aware of, prepared for, can test, and are able to treat Hantavirus more swiftly, others may avoid the heartache Kiley and her family have gone through. 

Kevin, Dawson, Julie, Hartlee, Lynn, Myke and the entire family are grateful for your continued prayers, love, and support.

Tueseday night:  From Julie -

It’s been a long day with some beautiful moments. We are so grateful for this day, filled with support and people on this journey with us. Kiley’s friends Melise, Jocelyn, Nicci and Taylor came to see her. Coach Julian and his wife came again to talk to Kiley. Sherri flew back from Austin and Paul flew in from Houston, Amy from Granbury, and Kate and Eddie... drove in from Lubbock and surrounded us with love and support. Our dear Rosemary returned, and Frank Malizzo our Pastor at MCC came and spent hours counseling us. We remain faithful. I am hoping for a miracle of God’s amazing power, and praying for God to be with Kiley, Kevin and all of us. Kevin’s family has been here, his best friend and brother, Phillip, parents and grandmother Betty, all here caring for Dawson and sharing this time of extreme stress. Somehow There is a calmness now, a different feeling that makes me think that this miracle we have prayed for, is already happening. No, our miracle is THIS DAY ..... as it is going forward. G.G. Brought that out a few weeks ago and it has made many miracles more evident to me. They happen each day, have happened and will today. With our faith that all our prayers are to glorify God, we can walk together through THIS DAY. As I hold my daughter’s earthly hand for possibly the last time... I know, she has been a miracle all along.... and that only God’s Will shall be done. Kevin said it this way, “ if it hurts this much to think of being without her, it must be pretty amazing”. We will never be without her, only away for a while. Thank you all, we remain faithful, courageous, confident and grateful.

Monday night - From Julie:

Membership into clubs or organizations is something I’ve always enjoyed, but I’d really like to turn this one down. As I sit silently next to her, memories flood my heart... her first smile, steps, all the friends, laughing, car rides, holidays, more laughing and tears. It’s going to suck. I looked for a verse ... something to sum up a reason, or allowance but I just see nothing that is able to ease this for us. More memories... I try to recall something profound about God that I shared with my Kiley, “I remember fixing her hair- Pre-Hartlee days, and telling her to go get her black and white bow. She said, at age 3, black and white like Jesus? I nod... understanding how she came to this... ... Tim looked at me puzzled and I ignored him realizing in that moment kiley could connect with me... on a different plane.  I’ve had pain before, and I am accepting that as before, this is not going to be easy. It’s always going to suck. I will miss that laugh every day, and all of this sadness is going to be with us... but.... we can go on. We will, and we can. It’s still our choice to be crushed or be courageous. We Choose courage. Please don’t feel sorry or pity us. I wouldn’t trade the 27 years of having Kiley in this life. We will stay connected. It has been my honor that I got to learn from her, and enjoy life through her heart. Yes, this hurts. She is prepared, we remain faithful. I placed Kiley’s hand on my heart... connected .....this is us, I have told her I will be right behind her, like always.... and we will always be connected. She is connected with others... Hartlee, Kevin, Dawson and many more. Bonded before she had her first breath and forever after as well. Yes I’m scared, for all of us and I’ll try to be comforted by scripture... And well meaning encouragement. It is still going to suck. No one has to try to find the perfect words, there are none. Words mean nothing ..... and none of them will ease this ...And please don’t worry, if you say something anyway.... and please do....We really can’t hear you, the only sound is the nothing.... the ugly void of loss that feels like nothing.... I’ve heard it before but I know this time it will make me deaf. I just know, sucky things happen, and God didn’t want this. I know God heard all our prayers and He gave us time, precious time. He wanted something else, and maybe we will not see this for a while, but we will remain faithful, courageous,connected, together always. We will go on, this has changed me forever, if it has changed someone or something please tell us! Help us find the part of this that makes sense.....please!looks like this membership card is for all of us in some ways....and it’s going to suck.  “Red and yellow black and white” they are precious in his sight... Jesus loves the little children of the world... Black and white, like Jesus.
