THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Chad Tress Benefit In Coleman Oct. 13
Chad Tress of Madison, who graduated from Coleman High School, has been diagnosed with Spinocerebellar Ataxia, a neurological condition which causes the cells in the cerebellum to degenerate. The nervous system controlling movement is damaged, resulting in the lack of balance and coordination. At this time, there is no known cure and the condition is considered to be progressive and irreversible. He recently traveled to Kiev, Ukraine for his first stem cell treatment.
To help cover the cost of future treatments and other expenses, a benefit will be held on Saturday, Oct. 13th, from 1-6 pm at Furkees in Coleman. There will be food, refreshments, raffles and a silent auction. Anyone interested in donating a raffle item or monetary gift, please contact his aunt, Paula Seewald 920-897-3250, his sister, Jessica Mathias 608-712-7700 or an uncle, Mike Seewald 920-373-1164.
A benefit savings account has been established at the Peshtigo National Bank where donations can be sent to PO Box 8, 117 US Hwy. 141, Coleman, WI 54112.
