Local Sheriff’s Deputy Has Fast Growing Lymphoma
One of Humboldt’s own is ill, very ill. Humboldt County Sheriff’s Deputy Charlie Lamb, a father of four, was diagnosed last month with stage 4 Lymphoma. Lamb has been stationed all over Humboldt County including for a time as the Shelter Cove resident deputy.
“He plays a really huge role from Southern Humboldt to Orleans,” explained Jessika Sterling, his niece. “He is one of the most honest hardworking men I know…He never turns his head when it comes to helping someone out. I don’t know anyone more deserving of help in a time of need then he is.”
In the last two weeks, the community has rallied around Deputy Lamb and raised over $27,000. “It makes me teary to think about all the people who have reached out to help my family,” Deputy Lamb said. “I can’t tell you the stress that this removes. Taking care of my family means more to me than I can ever tell you.”
Still, more is needed. A tumor the size of a volleyball has been discovered in Lamb’s abdomen. Plus, other smaller ones have been found.
Lamb and his family need your help. If you can donate, go to his GoFundMe site here.
