With the help of donors like you, Luca was able to defeat his cancer. He has been in remission for more than a year, and his regular scans continue to come back clean.
Julie says her son is a happy, thriving little boy who loves action figures and his superhero-themed bedroom.
Because Julie and her family have seen first-hand the life-changing impact of blood and platelet donations, they want to repay the generosity of their community. They hold an annual blood drive in Luca’s honor as part of OneBlood’s Little Heroes campaign during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The Big Red Bus comes right to their neighborhood so friends and neighbors can continue to show support for Luca and others like him in need of transfusions. So far, more than 50 people have stepped up to donate and share their power in honor of Luca.
