Benefits planned to help family, leukemia patient
BELOIT After two trips to the emergency room and a visit to the doctor’s office, Cherie and Paul Seefeldt finally heard the bad news. Their son, 11-year-old Lucas, had leukemia.
On Aug. 14, Lucas was rushed to University Hospital in Madison, where the official diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia was made. The sixth-grader at Brother Dutton School in Beloit underwent his first round of chemotherapy the next day.
Family and friends are holding two fundraising events.
The first will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 2 at Diamond Lanes on Cranston Road in Beloit. Organizers are seeking monetary donations or gift baskets that will be auctioned off.
Money can be sent to the Lucas Seefeldt Benefit at First National Bank, 345 E. Grand Ave., Beloit, WI 53511. Gift baskets can be picked up by calling Courtney Trotter at (608) 921-6544.
The second event is scheduled Nov. 20 at Mike’s Roadhouse in Beloit.
