Our Best Friend Was Given 1-Year To Live.

Now We’re Helping Others.

What happened to Chris?

In 2017, Chris was given a year to live.

Dillon dropped out of college and asked the world to help him spend that last year experiencing their bucket list.

After our community helped us cross off 50+ bucket list items…we broke the world record for the most bone marrow donor signups in one day. 

One of the people who signed up ended up being a donor for Chris: his cancer is gone.

We're Not Done Yet.

We’re so grateful for what our community did – Clay and Dillon are now devoted to helping other cancer patients.

After our community helped saved our best friends life, we realized there’s an opportunity to help others.

We quit our jobs so that we could devote all of our time to help making bucket list dreams possible for cancer patients.

Now, we make a crowdfunded video series where we inspire our community to do everything they can to #LiveForAnother as we tell the story of these people’s lives.

Our Dream

With our videos, we hope to use the power of social media to inspire people to take action – together as a community we can help make incredible things possible for cancer patients.

Our biggest dream is to be able to tell amazing perspectives to our audience and see them rally together to make a huge difference.

Who Are We?

Dillon - One List One Life

I was was attending UC Davis as an undergrad in Managerial Economics and Cognitive Science before dropping out of college to help Chris complete his bucket list. Before that, most of my time went to Gamers Gift, a 501(c)3 non-profit that uses video games as a way to help children in the hospital and people facing disabilities.

One List One Life is important to me because I love the internet and I think we can use it to inspire people to help eachother as much as possible.

Clay - One List One Life

Dillon and I went to elementary, middle, and high-school together before going our separate ways for college. Eventually, I left Santa Clara University and joined a small start-up here in Sacramento. Dillon reached out to me about what his idea of turning One List One Life into something that helps more than just our friend Chris – I spoke to my wife and almost immediately quit my job to get started. 

One List One Life is important to me because I saw just how impactful our videos can be – I want as many people as possible to experience that joy.

Together, we run two organizations.

One List One Life is our reason to wake up in the morning – we love to work on these videos and bring joy to the people we help and the people in our community. Dillon leads the charge by producing/editing the videos and planning events/ bucket list items.

Clay, on the other hand, leads One List Media – the organization that helps us pay our bills while we’re working to grow One List One Life. One List Media is not nearly as exciting, but we use it as a way to pay our living expenses.

Our Journey to

‘Live For Another’ is our attempt to summarize this wild journey.

It might mean do your best to live for another beautiful day. It might mean consider how you could do something to make another person’s day a little brighter. We don’t really know, to be honest.

We just know that waking up everyday thinking of ways to make something magical happen for cancer patients has changed our lives and we want other people to experience that adventure with us.
