LaSalle Elementary School Dedicates Memorial Bench to Student Who Lost Battle with Cancer

The memory of 7-year-old Aiden Brooks-Spencer will remain at LaSalle Elementary School. A bench in the school’s butterfly garden was dedicated in the former student’s name Monday afternoon during a short ceremony.

Aiden attended LaSalle Elementary School during the 2013-14 year as a kindergartner. He spent the following school year at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. He died in April, 11 months after his diagnosis.

The American Red Cross is encouraging eligible donors to make a point to give blood before the busy holiday season arrives. Blood donations often decline between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day as people become busy with holiday festivities. Donors are needed in the weeks leading up to the winter holidays to help prevent these seasonal declines.

The Red Cross will be at LaSalle School, 300 N Highland, on November 10, 2014 from 3:15 to 7:15 if you would like to donate blood.

 Donors of all blood types, and especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative, are needed now to help maintain a stable blood supply.

 Blood donation appointments can be made through the Red Cross Blood Donor App. The app also allows users to track donation histories, earn rewards and invite others to join them on a lifesaving team. The app is free and available for download in app stores.

 Donors may also visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to learn more about the donation process and to make an appointment.
