HARTLAND - The American Red Cross has organized a blood drive to honor two boys who died of cancer in the last year.

The event honors Jack Bartosz.  He died after a seven-year battle with neuroblastoma, but his story touched the lives of many in Wisconsin through the "I Back Jack" campaign.

It also honors Christopher Schraufnagel, who battled a brain tumor that later relapsed where cancer cells spread through his body.

The MACC Fund gave their assistance to both these children.

The Jack Bartosz and Christopher Schraufnagel Memorial Blood Drive happens on Saturday, from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at Lake Country Lutheran High School at the corner of Highways 83 and 16 in Hartland.
