DJ Mad Mardigan, whose real name is Nick Dircz, is not only the resident DJ for the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx. He’s also a teen cancer survivor.

Once a month, he performs at the M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital with the goal of brightening the day of their patients but also teaches them the art of dj’ing

Mardigan said that he’s got close ties to the facility, according to CBS News:

“Our first-born, Flora, was born very early as a preemie so we were here for about four weeks and just really fell in love with the hospital and all the programs and services that they offer here,” said DJ Mad Mardigan.

Before his mom passed away, she made blankets for the patients here.

“I’ll never forget the day we came in here with all these boxes and dropped them off and I see that they still use them to this day,” he said.
