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!”.
