Personal: Tap Cancer Out

Leave a comment

This isn’t anything to do with javascript or development.  Children and BJJ are 2 of my life’s loves and so I see it fitting to post things that I am passionate about here as well as development (not to say I’m not passionate about my work, I am).

Many of you know me as just a father, some of you know me just from BJJ. Children and BJJ are 2 of my passions in life. Both have changed my life forever. To know that we can put men on the moon, that we can land on an asteroid, that we have peered into the inner workings of our universe, but that we can’t save children suffering from cancer is heartbreaking.

On August 15th I’ll be competing in a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament. However, this is no ordinary fight. I am taking part in the 2015 Tap Cancer Out Summer BJJ Open and along with my competitors, I’ll be fighting for those who are in the fight of their lives – children with cancer.
