One of the world famous Hanson Brothers, Jeff Carlson, needs your help.

Carlson alongside his real life brother Steve Carlson and friend Dave Hanson of course played the role of the Hanson brothers (Jeff Hanson, Steve Hanson, Jack Hanson) in the incredible film Slap Shot in 1977. Carlson's son Hunter has created a Go Fund Me account on his father's behalf to help him pay for mounting medical bills.

From Hunter:

Hey Everyone,
I wanted to thank all of you for the shares and donations to my father's cause. I have been telling him about the stories some of you have shared along with the photos and he appreciates the support in these hard times.
He is still working on getting the swelling down in his throat and is seeing a specialist this week to hopefully get some more information on recovery and to hopefully get a time frame on if/when he can have the feeding tube removed.
Again, thank you all so much for the continued support and I will keep you all updated again soon!
