Donate blood in honor of Keller King.  Keller King, 4, loves riding his bike, playing baseball with his brother and helping his mom around the house.  Keller is also a blood recipient.  Three years ago, after being diagnosed with a stage 1 Wilms tumor, Keller needed a blood transfusion prior to surgery to remove the tumor and his left kidney.  Join Keller’s family in celebrating this happy little boy by giving blood for others in need.
