GoFundMe launched for Northland’s Lamberty battling cancer

The Northland College community is putting their sticks together to stand "Lambo Strong" for sophomore Jake Lamberty.

The Lumberjack men’s hockey forward has recently been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

A GoFundMe page has been organized for the 22-year-old by a close family friend. According to the post Jake was experiencing some chest pain and upon visiting the hospital a large mass was discovered in a cavity next to his heart.

The plan is for his chemotherapy to begin by the first of the year.

As of Monday night over $13,100 of a $50,000 goal has been raised. According the the GoFundMe, Lamberty’s mantra right now is, "just give me the Good Stuff, and let’s get after it!”.
