The American Red Cross is holding a blood drive on June 23 in Belle Vernon to help support Cam Jasso. He’s an 11-year-old boy who is battling orbital rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer in the eye, for a second time.

He was cancer free for two years, but was diagnosed again in February of this year.

According to the Red Cross, friends, family, teachers and parents of classmates have already signed up to donate blood.

The drive will be held at Marion Elementary School in the gymnasium, at 500 Perry Ave, Belle Vernon, PA 15012.
