The Schroeder family would love to give back the gift of life and bring awareness to childhood cancer by hosting a blood drive honoring Kaiden, who is currently battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

A blood drive Kaiden Schroeder will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Aug. 30 at the First Christian Church, 101 S. Walnut St. in McPherson. For an appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org and enter Sponsor Code: Kaiden or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

In 2009, at the age of four, Kaiden was diagnosed with ALL and has been in and out of remission six times since his diagnosis. ALL is a cancer that starts from the white blood cells in the bone marrow & invades the blood supply fairly quickly. Due to this Kaiden has received more than 100 units of blood throughout his treatment. Generous blood donors like you have made life possible for Kaiden, and for that he and his family are eternally grateful. Please support our cause and consider donating blood to help save the lives of those in need.
