It was a real privilege to document Tap Cancer Out BJJ Open this past April, and share all of their stories. This event gathered members of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community in an effort to raise money and awareness and support local and national organizations, hospitals, doctors and their efforts to find a cure for cancer.
"They are fighting for those who are in the fight of their lives" – Jon Thomas, founder Tap Cancer Out.
We chose to feature several competitors who have each been affected by cancer in their own ways. Some with personal struggles and others friends and family. It was important to us that this video was not simply a recap of the event, but represented in many cases a very personal struggle and emotion behind the many who participated in support this cause.
We encourage you to learn more about the Tap Cancer Out Foundation at tapcancerout.org.
