A benefit fundraiser will be held this weekend for a Stratford infant battling a rare form of Leukemia.

Treyden Kurtzweil, four months, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) on September 5.

(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.

Saturday, November 10, Illusions Bar and Grill will host a Spaghetti Feed from 11am-7pm. All proceeds will be going towards Treyden’s medical expenses. The event will also include a 50/50 drawing, raffle items, and silent auction.

If you'd like more information, or would like to help call (715) 352-2690 or stop on by the bar.

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

Illusions Bar and Grill is located at 3780 Redwood Street in Fenwood.
