Family, friends and neighbors are invited to Dale's Weston Lane on March 9 from 4-9 pm for a benefit to help Treyden Kurtzweil, a eight-month-old boy from Stratford currently battling a rare form of leukemia.

Treyden was diagnosed in September 5, 2012 with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). ALL is a cancer of the bone marrow cells and more specifically, a cancer of the white blood cells. This type of leukemia is rarely found in infants. When a child is under the age of 1, the leukemia can be harder to treat. He is receiving outstanding care for his (ALL), but the Leukemia diagnosis has been devastating to Treyden and his family and friends.

Treyden has been through many treatments of chemo, but a family friend tells NewsChannel 7 doctors are waiting for him to be remission before he can have a bone marrow transplant in Minnesota, which is his next step in treatment.

Treyden is currently under treatment at Ministry Saint Joseph's Children's Hospital in Marshfield.

Tickets for the “Help Treyden Kick Cancer” event can be purchased at Hammer Down Bar in Mosinee or by contacting Andrea Hotchkiss at (715) 551-5085 or Betsy Kurtzweil at (715) 687-2426.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for children 4-12 years old. Tickets must be purchased prior to the event.
