MARSHFIELD, Wis. (WSAU) - The family that recently lost their young son to a rare illness is working with Marshfield Clinic on a special project for other families with young children.
On June 14th, Travis and Cassie Kurtzweil of Stratford lost their son Treyden three days after his first birthday. Treyden had Leukemia. Now, his parents are collaborating with Marshfield Clinic to decorate and equip the new family waiting room for juvenile hematology and oncology patients.
In a message on the Saving Treyden Facebook site, the Kurtzweil’s say how important it is to give kids with cancer an environment that is not like the indoor confines of home or the hospital. The volunteers will decorate it with a camping and outdoor theme, and be known as Treyden’s Cabin. Marshfield Clinic is accepting donations for the project online.
