Thank you all for visiting Caleb’s GoFundMe page!

Caleb was just diagnosed with neuroblastoma, classified as stage 3 cancer.  The mass is quite large and surrounds his aorta and renal artery.  Caleb will have to endure a blood transfusion, biopsy, and a bone marrow test followed by 5-6 rounds of chemotherapy before any surgery can be preformed.  Caleb will have to travel back and forth to the hospital every 28 days for 5 days of treatment.

 Caleb is a fun loving 3-year old with two older sisters, Sarah and Rachel who are 13 and 9 years old. Caleb’s father, Courtland Lambert, has served the citizens of Richmond, Virginia as a firefighter for 15 years.  Courtland also works part-time in order to support his beautiful young family.  Kimberley, Caleb’s Mother, is a nurse at Lee Davis Medical Center.  Both parents have dedicated their lives to helping others.  Now, the Lamberts need our help! They are facing an uphill fight and will need all of the financial assistance they can get. 

Caleb is currently in the hospital with his family by his side waiting for treatment.  All funds raised will go directly to the Lamberts to assist with medical and related expenses.   

 Please keep Caleb and his family in your thoughts and prayers as he begins this uphill fight with cancer.

This page was created by Courtland Lambert's extended fire department family.

Mr. Caleb and his awesome family has had a lot going on in the past few weeks! Caleb is back in the hospital, with his family by his side, going through a fourth round of chemo.

Caleb's father and mother, Courtland and Kimberly, went to NY this past week to get a second opinion on treatment options for Caleb. While they were in NY, Caleb's grandmother and grandfather assumed the day to day responsibilities of Courtland and Kimberly (taking care of Caleb and his two awesome sisters over SPRING BREAK!!!!)

After returning, the family was able to spend Easter together celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Their faith is rock solid, even in these trying times.

Once again, I would like to extend the overwhelming appreciation of the family, for not only the donations, but the prayers and kind words as well!!

God never gives more than one can handle. This family is the strongest I have ever seen. We have to stick with them for the long haul! We are with you Caleb!!
Caleb and his two loving sisters!

WE HAVE REACHED 90% OF OUR GOAL!!

THANK YOU ALL!!

We wanted to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for all of the prayers, support, meals, and donations! The family is truly overwhelmed with the outpouring support from so many people from all over the United States! For more frequent updates on our buddy Caleb, follow Team Caleb's facebook page..

The family received some awesome news this week!

"Hello friends! ❤️ I am sorry for keeping you all waiting for the results of the MIBG scan. We had preliminary results but did not receive official results until this morning in clinic.

The scan revealed "a significant interval reduction in the size of the large right suprarenal neuroblastoma which no longer demonstrates abnormal radiolabeled MIBG uptake. No new disease sites of MIBG avidity are seen."

In short, the chemo is working!

Awesome work everybody!! We are so close to meeting our financial goal we set to help Caleb.

Caleb has had a very busy few days. After receiving a heroes welcome home from the hospital, escorted and greeted by Hanover Fire Department, Richmond Fire Department, Henrico Fire Department, Richmond Police Department and so many family and friends, Caleb is back in the hospital after a spike in his fever. Below is an updated post from his mother.

"We are being admitted. His WBC count is 500. 1,000 is considered critical. Normal is 6,000-11,000. So he is on neutropenic precautions. Please no visitors until further notice as much as we love y'all. He has zero resistance right now.

We are just about 3/4 of the way to our goal!! Thank you all so much! Please continue to pray for Caleb and his family!
** Lets finish up strong, meeting our goal of 50k by tomorrow!** If all goes well Caleb will return home tomorrow until the next round of treatments.

See below for info:
"Hey Team, I am waiting to hear from the Lambert's on whether or not Caleb will be coming home tomorrow. As soon as I hear something I will post it. I am asking a huge favor from the team. Create posters and banners because we are gonna line the streets leading to the Lambert's house. I would like to get enough folks to line Yellorose Ln, Silktree Pl, and Greystone Creek Rd out to Creighton Pkwy. There will be fire apparatus involved on their route home. Units from Richmond, Henrico, and Hanover have all committed to being a part of Caleb's homecoming. Let's show the Lambert's how much the community is a part of this fight. Stay tuned to this page as I will post a time to start gathering in the streets to welcome Caleb and his family Home Sweet Home. Thanks for your support."
