Jeff Houseknecht (age 42) is a loving father to Zach (12) and Lily (10) and husband to Carrie who was diagnosed on January 27, 2021 with esophageal cancer after a fall in his driveway two weeks earlier. Upon consultation with Sloan Kettering in New York City and with doctors at Strong, he has learned that he has a very rare form of cancer (neuroendocrine carcinoma of the esophagus-large cell) and that it is terminal since it has spread to his liver, lungs, spine, and lymph nodes. The doctors have given him a short prognosis where he will likely not see his and Carrie’s 15th anniversary on September 30th. Jeff wants to spread awareness of esophageal cancer so that no other family has to experience this terrible disease. Please consider a shirt purchase or donation to his online fundraiser.
