CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A special blood drive is being held Aug. 24 that will honor Cincinnati Police Sgt. Ron Schaeper and all first responders.

Schaeper suffered traumatic brain injuries and several broken bones when he was involved in a head-on crash last August on Columbia Parkway. He spent several months in the hospital and underwent nine surgeries.

Hoxworth's Anderson Donor Center, 7715 Five Mile Road, will be open from noon until 7:00 p.m. for donors to share the gift of life.  Donors of whole blood, double reds or platelets can schedule their donation for this special blood drive by visiting https://donateblood.uc.edu/Donor/ , typing the work CELEBRATE under Location, and scrolling down the list of blood drives to find this one.  Appointments are encouraged but not required, and can also be made by calling 513-451-0910.

Those not able to get to the Anderson Donor Center on Friday can participate in this special blood drive by donating at any of the Neighborhood Donor Centers (Anderson, Downtown, Blue Ash, Fort Mitchell, Mason, Tri-County, or Western Hills) until Saturday, Aug. 25 and giving the code PR-1248. 

Throughout his recovery, Sgt. Schaeper received many blood products made available by generous donors.  One year after the crash he has returned to work and, through outpatient therapy, continues to progress in his recovery.
