This is a film I did on my friend Albert Ocampo who rides the FireFlies West Ride to raise money for the City of Hope.
In September 2014, my mother passed away after an 8 year battle with cancer. I miss her every day and I feel deep empathy for everybody that cancer affects—from those that are fighting it themselves to their families—from the time of diagnosis through the eventual resolution. Both the stories of unspeakable loss and incredible triumph I've witnessed have inspired me to once again participate in this year’s @fireflieswest event—a 6 day, 530 mile ride travelling from San Francisco to Los Angeles to raise money and awareness for @cityofhope and their fight against cancer. For those who suffer, we ride. Please consider a donation at http://ourhope.cityofhope.org/albert
