A terminally-ill young Mansfield man hopes to achieve an important goal while he still has time.

Eighteen-year-old Brandon Traicoff has numerous disabilities by having a mother who smoked, drank, and took hard drugs during her pregnancy. He suffers from kidney failure and is not a candidate for a transplant because of his inability to care for himself.

The member of a Boy Scout troop for boys with special needs is holding a blood drive Monday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Main Street United Methodist Church at 230 South Main, to earn his Eagle Scout.

 Brandon hopes as many people as possible will donate blood to help others, and to help him.

To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-Red-Cross, or log on to www.redcrossblood.org, and use the sponsor code Brandon.
