The family and friends of Keagan Grames are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against leukemia. Please show your support!

Keagan is a 10 year old boy from Milan, Ohio. Like any normal fifth-grader, he loves to play with his friends, ride his bike, watch Gilligans Island re-runs (ok maybe that's not normal for today's fifth grader) and play sports. An exceptional athlete, Keagan has run and completed more than one 5K event in his short 10 years. Few adults reading this, including the author, cannot make this claim. Needless to say, Keagan is a normal, healthy, and happy American boy.

On October 28th, the world changed for Keagan and his family. After an extended fever and severe joint pain, Keagan was tested and diagnosed with Leukemia.

Nearly 4,000 children in the United States are given this diagnosis every year.

Like all of us who live every day to raise good and decent children, work to pay the bills, and carve out time to enjoy moments with the ones we love; Keagan, his mom Pam, dad Jeff, and sister Victoria never thought this statistic would mean much to them, but they have risen to the challenge and have committed themselves to focusing their efforts on winning this battle.

As neighbors and friends, we have joined together to make sure the concerns of finances, schedules, transportation, etc. are met for Keagan and his family during this process.

Please consider supporting Keagan as he begins his road to recovery. We should all reflect on the blessings present in our lives, and give forward knowing that it could happen to any one of us in the blink of an eye.
