Spend a few minutes with the charismatic co-founder of Dangerbird Records and you know you are with a man on a mission. Jeff Castelaz built an independent label from the ground up in 2004 that is home to Silversun Pickups and Sea Wolf, now he is taking all those skills toward fighting and beating pediatric cancer. These may seem like lofty goals, but they are incredibly personal to Jeff who lost his six-year-old son Pablo earlier this year to cancer. Since the beginning of his son’s diagnosis he has blogged about the experience and along the way founded the Pablove Foundation in honor of his son. We watched him pedal his bike into Los Angeles after an incredible 3000 mile journey across the country. We also followed his defiant return to the children’s hospital that treated his son to help other children who are suffering. His story is remarkable and inspiring.
