More about Conn

In 2006, Conn Bertish, an iconic internationally awarded creative director, big wave surfer, husband and father of two young children was diagnosed with a severe and extremely rare form of adult malignant brain cancer.

Using his experience in creative thinking and storytelling, Conn immersed himself in his cancer using pens, pencils, paint and sticks of chalk. The world became his physical metaphoric cancer-beating playground. An upbeat, visually engaging canvas that helped him augment his treatments, his resilience and immune system. This ultimately increased his chances of survival and helped him beat his cancer in 2013.

Conn has been urged by doctors, oncologists, neurologists and professors of science to share this way of thinking. The result is The Cancer Dojo: a platform that will empower people facing cancer with the tools, content, information and ideology of Dojo Thinking.
