A local family is dealing with a tragedy that hasn't happened yet.

James Kluck has been diagnosed with an inoperable tumor. He's undergoing treatment, but knows he only has a couple of years to live.

Saturday, his friends and family are out at Peg Leg's Bar in Polonia, raising money to help Jim's family pay for his treatment and provide for themselves, and so far that effort has been going very well.

"Stuff is coming in every day. I don't know how much I can say thanks to this community. It's great to be here," said Peg Wierzba, Jim Kluck's sister.

If you want to chip in, you can make a donation at any Stevens Point Community First Bank or stop in at Peg Leg's Bar in Polonia Saturday for the fundraising event.
