Diagnosed with a hereditary degenerative retinal condition as a young child, Jeff has spent a lifetime learning to adjust to ever decreasing visual acuity. November 14, 1999 is a day that Jeff will never forget, because it was the day he lost his driver’s license due to this terrible disease.

When Jeff was only 21 years old, he was diagnosed with two forms of malignant cancer at the same time! One form of testicular cancer came with a 90% kill rate.

For several years, Jeff was under the care of a cardiologist for chronic chest pain caused by a bad heart valve and also faced surgery to correct heart arrhythmia.
