Beatport helps 16-year-old DJ Seebaum live his DJing dream while fighting cancer
This afternoon beginning at 3 p.m. EST, Beatport will be streaming a live performance from Sagar V, DJ Seebaum, and Blond:ish. This stream, however, is unlike most others of its kind. Sixteen year old Tanner Seebaum has been fighting cancer for most of his life but now, after eight years in remission, he’s been told his brain tumor is back and terminal. Music acts as an outlet for the brave young man who spends more than three hours daily in his basement perfecting his craft. According to the Las Vegas Sun, “He absorbs himself in the beats, blocking everything else out of his mind.”
With only weeks to live, Beatport is helping Seebaum fulfill his DJing destiny. Make sure to tune in at 4PM to catch DJ Seebaum’s 30-minute set and spread the word using #BEATS4TANNER. You can donate to the Tanner Seebaum foundation via Firstgiving.
