WATERBORO — Members of the County Patrol Association, the union that represents York County Sheriff’s Office deputies, is helping make the Christmas season a little brighter for a Waterboro family.

For her entire life, 11-year-old Camryn Richards, the daughter of Laurel and Michael Richards of Waterboro, has suffered from liver disease.

She recently underwent a successful partial liver transplant but has now been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, as a result of the intense medication regiment.

Her daughter’s illness has forced Laurel Richards to take a leave of absence from her teaching job at Massabesic High School, causing a strain on the family’s budget. When the deputies heard of the challenges facing the Richards this Christmas, they unanimously decided to assist the family with a $500 donation.
