WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- West Lafayette High School math teacher Karri Huckstep started the '352' blood drive in honor of her daughter, Caroline, who died in 2008 after a long battle with leukemia.
After 10 years of hosting blood drives, they have collected more than 1,000 units of blood.
Moved by the 352 units of donated blood Caroline used in her battle with leukemia, Karri decided that collecting units is the best way to help other families.
"The ending of our story is not happy, but to be able to take that ending and be able to turn it into something positive, that's really what we kind of focus on," said Huckstep.
The blood drive was from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at West Lafayette High School Wednesday night.
