Episode 051 – Dillon Hill

Welcome to another episode of The HERO Show. I am your host Richard Matthews, (@AKATheAlchemist) and you are listening to episode #51 with Dillon Hill – Asking the World for Help to Save a Friend.

In 2017, Dillon’s friend–Chris–was given a year to live.

Dillon dropped out of college and asked the world to help him spend that year experiencing their bucket list. After their community helped cross off 50+ bucket list items…they broke the world record for the most bone marrow donor sign-ups in one day.

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

Dillon 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 Dillon’s 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 Dillon because he loves the internet and he thinks we can use it to inspire people – to help each other as much as possible.

Here’s just a taste of what we talked about today:

  • Dropping out of college after his friend received a terminal prognosis to experience an incredible, although limited, amount of time they have together.
  • Using their momentum in social media to break the world record for most bone-marrow sign-ups in one day.
  • Ultimately beating cancer. Now, Chris is under remission.
  • Creating opportunities for others and realizing that there are more stories to tell –that Dillon and Chris are not the only people who deserve these moments.
  • The transition from helping one friend to a cause-focused business to make a positive impact on people’s lives.
  • Being grateful to the community and paying it forward.
  • Using storytelling as a service to help people defeat cancer.
  • Harnessing the unique dynamic between content creator and viewers.
  • Just because there is a screen between people does not mean they cannot experience something deep.
  • Making content to be heard.
  • Throwing a dart on a map.
  • Contrast is what makes life interesting.
  • The power of an idea acted upon.
  • Keep going despite setbacks.
  • Always striving for the right balance in all endeavors.

Recommended tools: 

  • Looking back at accomplishments for motivation.
