Crandon boy faces leukemia diagnosis

Eli Kassler, 11, son of Corrie Kassler, the Family Nurse Practitioner at the Crandon Clinic, needs our help. Eli, a kind and energetic boy who loves hockey and fishing, has been diagnosed with t-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a particularly difficult form of leukemia to treat.

Eli is being treated in Milwaukee. He is currently receiving oral, IV and spinal chemotherapy and will continue for up to nine months. Additional treatments will be required, totaling three years.
