Baby Treyden loses battle with leukemia


The Stratford baby whose battle with cancer has brought support from across our area has lost his fight with the disease.

An aunt of Treyden Kurtzweil tells us the baby has passed away.

Newsline 9 has been following his story ever since Treyden was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. He and his family spent time at St. Jude's hospital in Tennessee hoping Treyden could receive a life-saving procedure.

Last week, Treyden's mother told Newsline 9 doctors said there's nothing else they could do, and the family flew back to Marshfield.

On Monday, supporters gathered in a parking lot across from Treyden's room at Ministry St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield. Hundreds came out to light candles, sing, and pray for Treyden on his first birthday.
