In the coming weeks, months, and years he will be facing chemotherapy, multiple appointments and procedures, medications, and blood draws.The Peebles Athletic Boosters held a benefit for Keller during Friday night’s Peebles/Ripley basketball game. They raised $1,444. Amy Huffman Swango, President of the Boosters posted on Facebook, “The Boosters wanted to do something to support Keller and his family. The boys ball team did a great job passing the Orange Keller bags through the stands all night collecting all the generous donations from our amazing community,” she added. “We also made a donation from our concession sales. We hope this will help them be able to concentrate on Keller’s healing and not have to worry about the extra expenses that staying away from home can bring.”Members of the Southern Ohio Beard Society were also present for the Friday benefit, selling their signature T-shirts and hats during the game and donating all proceeds to the #Keller Strong fund. Josh Tolle, President of the Society said, “I feel an incredible urge to help Keller in anyway I can, and I know the community joins me in that effort.” The society plans to continue their #Keller Strong fundraising at future basketball games.

Gift cards in any amount can be given to Ben Reed, Jane Williams, Melissa Williams, Cindy Frost, or any member of the church. Gift cards should be for restaurants, gas, shopping, groceries, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us, Target, or prepaid credit cards.”Community and family members are planning a #Keller Strong benefit in March, and a “Keller Wilson Benefit” account has been set up at all the First State Bank branches in Adams County.Anyone wishing to donate may do so at any of the above fundraising drives.Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is a cancer involving blood and bone marrow.
