Communities rally in support of 'Krew Dude'

March 1 was a stunning day for Richard and Stephanie (Freitag) Anderson, Omaha, when they received news that their first-born son, Krew, 6 1/2 months old, had been diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia). Suddenly their lives revolved around spinal taps, blood counts and chemo treatments as the young family engaged in the battle to save his life. Krew immediately began 10 days of chemo followed by 2 1/2 weeks of recovery. He was well enough to return home on April 2. Krew is scheduled to go back to Children's Hospital in Omaha this week for a second round of chemo. It is likely he will have two more additional rounds of chemo with the goal of having his cancer in remission in July.
To support the Anderson family, the community of Superior is hosting a benefit next Saturday at Superior Country Club, from 5 to 8 p.m. The evening will feature a silent auction, bone marrow swab sign-up, "Krew Dude" T-shirts for purchase as well as a benefit dinner consisting of sandwiches, chips, homemade desserts and beverages. A free will donation will be asked for the dinner. All proceeds from the event go to the family. Many individuals and businesses have already donated services, auction items and supplies to minimize expenses for the event. Stephanie is a graduate of Superior High School and her parents, Barney and Diana Freitag, still live and work in Superior.
The family has established a Facebook page, "The Krew Dude" to share Krew's journey with family, friends and others.

Deshler High School to present musical, 'Sister Act'

Many students at Deshler High School are working together to put on the hit Broadway show, "Sister Act," this weekend.
Synopsis: Deloris Van Cartier is an aspiring singer in the 70s in Philadelphia, where she is auditioning to perform at her gangster boyfriend's nightclub. Deloris believes Curtis is going to introduce her to a big producer, but is upset when he tells her she is not ready. Hurt and rejected, Deloris decides to break up with him, but when she goes to find him she accidentally sees him kill one of his cronies. Deloris runs to the police, who place her in hiding at a convent until Curtis is brought to trial. At first, Deloris believes it will be the worst thing in the world, chafing against the constraints of convent life and a staunch reverend mother, but once she is introduced to the struggling choir at the convent, everything changes. She finds many of the nuns are not that different from her, and they are fun to be around. They help give her a bigger purpose in life, showing her a genuine love and affection that was missing prior to her arrival at the convent. "Sister Act" is a joyous show that uses music to bring different communities and lifestyles together showing the value of vulnerability, openness and acceptance.
Tickets are available by calling the school, emailing Sarah at sarah.baden@deshlerdragons.org, or at the door. See the ad in this week's Superior Express for more information.
