Name: Joe Krzewina
Why the benefit is being held: In late June, Joe Krzewina, former Crivitz businessman and philanthropist, was diagnosed with metastasized prostate cancer, which is considered terminal. He and his family did extensive research and chose an alternative, unconventional treatment by Dr. Tallio and Dr. Simoncini at a clinic in Tempe, Ariz. His PSA numbers dropped significantly as his cancer is now in remission and his prognosis is good that he will be cured. His treatments have been costly and Medicare does not cover these medical expenses.
