A young father's biggest battle

Jan VanWageningen served his country in Iraq, but didn't face the biggest battle of his life until he returned home.

Jan was diagnosed two months ago with a rare, fast-growing form of cancer.

His recent round of chemotherapy has had little affect in slowing down the disease.

Jan's fiancé, Katie, one of my former co-workers at The Week, has enlisted her friends to organize a benefit motorcycle run to show their support and to help with expenses that have mounted while Jan has been hospitalized.

Registration for the V Dub benefit run will begin at 10 a.m. at the House of Harely Davidson, 6221 W. Layton Ave., Milwaukee. Donation is $10 per bike, and riders will go from Milwaukee to Sheboygan.

For more information, e-mail vdub_fund@yahoo.com.
