PLUM CITY--The ordeal of living with cancer has started to take a toll on Tim Helmueller.

Troy Cleasby, a friend of the Plum City native, said Wednesday the patient hasn't been able to go to Thomson Reuters, where they both work, roughly since the end of December, when the approach to his treatments changed.


"All of last year, he could do what he wanted," Cleasby said about his friend, who was diagnosed with aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Peripheral T-Cell Lymphoma a year ago last month.

Cleasby hoped the recipient of a benefit he's organizing with others for Saturday, March 23, will be able to attend it. The event is from 3 p.m. to midnight at The Ridgetop, between Ellsworth and Prescott on Hwy. 10, featuring silent and live auctions, a gun raffle, a 50/50 raffle, prize drawings, a bean bag tournament, minnow races, face painting and other children's activities. "Them Pesky Kids" will provide music.
