Laurens County Deputy Fighting Brain Tumor, Kidney and Lung Cancer

Catastrophic Loss
South Carolina
Created January 24th, 2024

Laurens County Deputy Christopher Motes is currently undergoing tremendous health issues, facing the challenges of kidney cancer which has metastasized to his lungs and his brain.

On Friday, January 19th, Chris had a seizure and an MRI showed a tumor on his brain. This Thursday January 25th, Chris will undergo a radiosurgery procedure to prepare him for a very extensive surgery on Friday, January 26th to remove the brain tumor.

This procedure will render him unable to return to work for a significant amount of time. Medical bills and expenses related to follow-up appointments will still require payment. In addition, Motes' wife Tabitha works for the Laurens County Sheriff's Office Animal Control. Due to the nature of Deputy Motes' health and surgery, Tabitha will be out of work as well to care for him during his recovery. 

Let's come together to rally behind one of our own, a brave deputy who selflessly serves and protects. Chris and Tabitha are both kind and giving people who need our help. LCSO will stand by them during this difficult journey.

You can donate using this fundthefirst fundraiser link. You can also donate via Venmo to @LaurensCountySheriff using Motes as the memo. Monetary donations can be dropped off at the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office during normal business hours, please specify the donation is for “Motes.”

Thank you for your support and prayers for Chris and Tabitha.
