I wasn’t quite sure when the right time was to make this person our Hero because honestly, she has been a Hero each and every month. Charlene Ellerbe was married to Herbie for 56 years. She was his soul mate, his wife, the mother of his children, and most of all, his rock. From the moment Herb & Charlene came to Houston, she was just as supportive and motivated to find a cure for this awful disease not only for Herb, but for everyone inflicted with this killer. She didn’t leave his side. From the multitude of Doctor visits, to the 2 day long chemotherapy treatments, to the awful side effects of the treatment, she was there every minute of every day. The loyalty and steadfast love she showed Herb was refreshing and true, and many people could learn from her. Charlene’s 80th Birthday is October 29th, and I could not think of a better time to honor her with the title of Herbies Hero.
