      This was posted in the BaT Watch thread but I think it deserves its owns space. I learned today Brad of 1552 has a daughter battling cancer and has set up a GoFundMe page.

      Link here: Go Fund Me Page Link

      I'm sure most if not all of us have had cancer touch our lives whether a family member, friend, or associate. My dad, step mom, and sister have all battled this terrible disease and come out clean. Having a child diagnosed with cancer is inconceivable to me but it happens every day.

      Just posting this because I know despite differences TCL and the automotive community in general are all family and we help each other out when we can. This is a little more serious than pulling over to help change a tire.

      I don't know Brad personally and I hope I am not overstepping here. As a father myself I just think it is important to spread the word as much as possible.

      Just thought this needed it's own thread - and (mods) maybe a sticky? Let's do what we can to help.

      Nice to see the community come together for Brad, he's been a long time in the VW enthusiast community and is a big part of the car community. Always been a nice guy.

      Thanks for posting.

      Brad is good people, and an old school VW guy (who did some of the most epic builds of the period) and a Vortexer.

      He just auctioned his Golf R on BaT to help raise funds for his daughter's care.

      Let's get this one stickied.

      Donated. The charity that is near and dear to my heart funds childhood cancer research. I thank my lucky stars that my children have never been personally affected by cancer.

      Donated and just wanted to bump. Lost my mom to cancer way too young and I can only imagine losing a child.

      Hey man!

      Never met you in person but the TCL community is behind you. FWIW one of my best friends beat leukemia and is doing well, so with the right support this can be done. All the best!!
