The bleeding disorders community has lost a national champion and advocate, Terry Lamb.
Terry passed away Monday afternoon, May 29, 2012, of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 61.
Terry was born and resided in Lynchburg, VA. At age three, he was diagnosed with severe hemophilia and fought hard to not let his condition hold him back from doing things he wanted.
Throughout his life, Terry dedicated his time and energy to the hemophilia community and worked closely with the Virginia Hemophilia Foundation, Hemophilia of North Carolina, and Hemophilia Foundation of Maryland. Terry was also a valued volunteer of the Hemophilia Federation of America’s, FitFactor program — where he role modeled good physical behaviors at 60+. He will be remembered as a staunch promoter of exercise, diet and good treatment for those living with a bleeding disorder.
In March, Terry was elected to HFA’s Board of Directors. Terry’s positive energy, sweet southern charm and charisma will be deeply missed.
Further information will be posted as it becomes publicly available.
