THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Eric C. Nelson Benefit at Loopys II Sept. 21
A benefit for Eric C. Nelson Nelly, 32, son of Virginia and Loren Nelson of Lakewood, formerly of Coleman, will take place Saturday, Sept. 21 at 1 p.m. at Loopy 's II, between Peshtigo and Marinette.
The husband and father has had a very serious bout with blasto-mycosis since December of 2012.
The blasto-mycosis took an extended amount of time to diagnose and eventually resulted in removal of the lower third of his left lung. This led to numerous visits to doctors and the need for many medications and a lengthy and on-going recovery period.
The blasto-mycosis and removal of part of his lung resulted in diminished breathing capacity which prevented his return to work until now.
Admission to the event will be with the purchase of a wrist band, which gives free food and tappers. There will be chances to win many prizes, silent auctions, music and more. The public is invited.
