All of us at Scare Away Cancer encourage you give blood in memory of Kayla Hebenstreit. Make plans to donate on Friday, July 7th at Clancy's Pub from noon until 6:00 p.m.
Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate your blood can save a life, or even several if your blood is separated into its components — red cells, platelets, and plasma — which can be used individually for patients with specific conditions.
Kayla was a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. At only 29 years old, she was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma. She went on to battle cancer four times and received blood during years of treatment that included several surgeries. Sadly, she died in July 2015.
Kayla’s family is keeping her memory alive by hosting a blood drive in her name.
