Mark introduced us to our Patient Hero, Jeff Scheffert, a selfless person himself, and one that is especially loved by his community for the countless hours of volunteer work he has done, especially coaching children.

Jeff is a warrior battling this disease with his brave wife Tracey and their four incredible children by his side.
