4-30-14 kewaskum honorary blood drive

The American Red Cross is holding a blood drive next week in honor of two Kewaskum High School teachers.  Red Cross spokesperson Brian Gomez says the blood drive is in honor of teachers Stacy LaRonge and Dan Ross, who received two blood transfusions while recovering from a kidney transplant. Gomez says Ross was diagnosed last year with a kidney disease and LaRonge volunteered her kidney to start a donation chain which ended with Ross finding a viable, healthy match.  Gomez says it shows just how tight-knit the community and school is.  The blood drive will be held from noon to 6pm Tuesday May 6th at

the Kewaskum Middle School gymnasium.
