- Today, Easton Senoraske feels pretty good, by tomorrow he probably won't. Easton has leukemia, and the chemo that's saving his life, is also putting it on hold. Last year, around this time the 13-year-old played baseball for the Hodags. Now he's sidelined."You can tell it's taken a toll on him a little bit. Body-wise, strength-wise… He still has strength but, you know, he's tired more," said Mark Senoraske, Easton's father. "[He] still has a smart mouth, so you know, that's the road to recovery," he said with a smile.
For now, Easton travels to Marshfield from Rhinelander, every 2 weeks, for treatment that costs thousands of dollars, out-of-pocket."Today's a big one, it's tens of thousands of dollars," said Senoraske. "But it's part of his treatment... You really can't put a price on it, you know? You have to have it done. That's why the support of the community is… you can't put a price on that…" Tomorrow friends are holding a Family Fun Night to fundraise for Easton's treatment and travel cost. They're calling it "Going to Bat for Easton" in honor of his love for baseball. It's at the Taj Majal Banquet Center in Rhinelander tomorrow between 2:00 and 10:00 pm. There will be live music, a spaghetti dinner, a bake sale, games and crafts for children, arcade games, the Rhinelander Fire Department, and tons of raffles.
