Blake Shelton has established a Cancer Research Program in honor of his cousin, Aspen Van Horn. He has made donations in the past to the Oklahoma University’s Children’s Hospital Foundation and said, “They don’t turn any kids away. You come in there, you have a problem, they don’t turn anybody away, so I thought, ‘That’s a place that needs some money.”
Aspen received treatment for a neuroblastoma tumor when she was only 5 months old. She will celebrate her 3rd birthday next month.
