LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) – Rivals Beaver Local and East Liverpool came together Tuesday night to rally around a teen fighting Leukemia.
A Hometown Hope volleyball match was held at Beaver Local to show support for Blake Suznevich, a senior at East Liverpool.
Both teams and fans wore orange.
All proceeds from T-shirt sales, concessions and the Chinese raffle will go to the Suznevich family.
Blake was diagnosed with Leukemia back in February. Last month, he received a bone marrow transplant from his brother, Elijah.
Blake’s father, Dan, says Blake’s 30-day post-bone marrow biopsy shows 100% donor cells and no cancer.
