SHEPHERDSVILLE - Despite his illness, the guest of honor didn’t seem to mind the pain.
Damon Sanders enjoyed himself during a special Red Cross blood drive in his honor at Shepherdsville City Hall.
Damon was diagnosed with leukemia and T-cell lymphoma on Oct. 14. His mother, Shannon, said a seven-inch tumor in Damon’s chest cavity caused his heart to move and filled his lungs with fluid.
Damon’s grandfather, Dale McKinney, is an American Legion Post 157 member. The post first hosted a fundraising event for Damon in November.
