Thanks to Shawn Flynn’s passionate vision and support of pediatric cancer research, the initial Little Heroes Campaign in 2020 was one of the largest blood drive campaigns at OneBlood. The annual event occurs during the entire month of September, which is National Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, consisting of blood drives in honor of children who suffered from life-threatening cancer. OneBlood has over 30 drives scheduled this September honoring 30 children.
Blood drives are September 1st through September 30th throughout the Charlotte metropolitan area. All donors will receive a limited-edition Little Heroes T-Shirt, $20 eGift Card and a $10 donation will be made back to the Isabella Santos Foundation for every successful donation!
