on behalf of Charlie Lamb
 EUREKA, CA
In March 2017, Charlie Lamb was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. As one can imagine, it is almost impossible to prepare for such news. Charlie is the sole provider for his family.  It can take several months to years for Charlie to recover from this illness.  This condition will impose a large financial issue on Charlie and his family unless they receive help. 

Charlie is a perfect example of integrity, loyalty, honesty, and is one of the hardest working people you will ever meet.  He is not only known for devotion to his wife and four children, but to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.  He is always the first person to lend a hand or help someone in need.  He is a loving father and is extremely active in their lives, sports, and education. 

Charlie Lamb is a longtime member of Humboldt County and Deputy Sheriff for the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. 

Charlie grew a desire to seek employment where he could be impactful in people’s lives. Throughout his life, he had always had the desire to help others; therefore in 2001 he accepted a position, as a Correctional Officer, with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. 

As a Correctional Officer, Charles excelled.  He was quickly recognized for his ability to lead and his compassion for others.  In 2005, Charlie was promoted to Deputy Sheriff.  A position he proudly holds today. During this time, he has had a positive impact in the community personally and professionally. 

We ask that you hold Charlie and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this tough time.

The Lamb Family would like to thank you for your support, prayers, and generosity.

Excellent news:

From Charlie:

“Dr called on the way home said they can't find any trace of the cancer. They don't even want me to do radiation, there is no target to shoot at. I'm a little shocked still cause I went down expecting this new treatment (which sounded pretty bad) and coming home being told I'm clear!”

This is incredible news since less than a month ago the scan showed the cancer very much there.

Again, there are no words to express our gratitude for your generosity, prayers, and support.

To All Our Charlie Supporters:

As many know Charlie recently spent a month in Stanford receiving a bone marrow transplant. We were all excited and felt very optimistic that this treatment would knock the cancer out of his body. I’m disappointed to tell you that the treatment didn’t work and the cancer seems to be as stubborn as its host.
Charlie leaves Monday to spend another month in The Palo Alto area. The doctors will be performing an experimental treatment. We are praying this will do the trick.
Charlie won’t be in the hospital the entire time, however he has to stay in the area to receive the treatment. As you know, Palo Alto is extremely expensive. We have been researching places to stay and the social worker is helping us. We are not having much luck finding anything reasonable.
Therefore we will be holding another fundraiser. Everybody has been so generous and we hate asking for more, however, as unfortunately many know, cancer is extremely expensive. I will keep you posted.

Thank you again for all your generosity, prayers, support. Charlie and his family are appreciative beyond words.

Please pray for Charlie Lamb as he under goes his bone marrow transplant. He is currently at Stanford Hospital where he will remain for the next three to four weeks. If the treatment works, then Charlie will be cancer free. However he will not know if the treatment was successful for approximately three months. The transplant is a very difficult procedure to endure. Thank you for all your support. I know Charlie and his family appreciate it beyond words. Charlie doesn't have internet at the hospital, however if you write him a message I'll make sure he gets it.

Charlie Lamb update:

As many know, Charlie had his PET Scan earlier this week.

From Charlie: "The cancer is in partial remission, the tumor is still smaller, in my abdomen. Future radiation and further chemo to try and get full remission."

This next message is one of the many reasons why I love this guy. When life throws lemons Charlie is the first one to smash the lemons into lemonade.

From Charlie: "Anything short of being told I'm terminal is a win. This will work out one way or another. Just a matter of seeing tomorrow will be better than today. I'll be home, see my friends, play some basketball, keep it in perspective. Not ready to cry and say why me, woe is me just yet."

Unfortunately the doctors want Charlie to have the bone marrow transplant as soon as possible. This is a very intense and painful procedure. He will have to spend a month in the hospital, in isolation, as they kill and re-build his immune system. It is also followed by months of recovery.

We are grateful the chemo is doing it's job, but was hoping Charlie would not have to go through this.
Please continue to pray for his strength and healing.

Charlie asked me to express his gratitude for each and every one of you for the continuous love and support you have given him and his family.

As Charlie's mom, I can only say that we are all surprised and excessively thankful this Thanksgiving Day. We all realize that the remission is not the cure, but sure looks good. He will have to report for more PET scans and blood woork, but as loon as the remission holds he will be on the way to the cure. There is absolutely no way the Lamb family and the extended members and friends can thank enough all the friends and people of Humboldt County and beyond for all your prayers and donations to help Charlie in this time of need. God has blessed us with this remission and we pray that God blesses all of you too. Thank all of you again for everything.

I am so excited with Charlie's news. I don't think I expected such results so soon in his treatment. The prayers of everyone certainly helped this outcome and promise for the next 5 years (take that long to pronounce cure). Also I think the Big Guy was in excellent physical and mental health for this fight, and thank the Lord for that too! All praises to God, doctors and medicine, and all of the people that love and care for him.

My son Charlie inspires me. And this county and his friends from everywhere, even overseas humble me with their love and caring for him. Tomorrow he starts the second session of Chemo at Standford, being there for 5 days again. . He has to do 6 of these in total. So far he has not had any bad reactions to his treatment except being very tired and needing rest a lot. But rest is Great at this point as his body physically fights and he mentally keeps such a uplifting and positive attitude. Thank all of you for your prayers and good wishes for him. They help sustain us.
