    Last July Paste & Cut was hit by the terrible loss of @Draco Noir/Tim Keech - after a very long battle against liver cancer.

    Tim was not only a great member here, but one of the finest human beings one could ever hope to encounter in life.

    In order to honour him and to raise funds for the Cancer Council Australia the team here at Paste & Cut has decided to run a series of charity auctions in mid July.

    The auctions will run from Thursday July.12 until Sunday July.15

    We have some cracking items up for grabs - and I mean CRACKING/UNOBTAINIUM - so please keep your wallets tight until then and save your pennies so you can bid as high as possible.

    All funds will be donated by the winners directly to the cancer council Australia and our Vendors/Artisans are donating 100% the prices and shipping costs within Australia!

    And for those of you on sabbatical: these auctions are of course exempt ;)

    Here just a small teaser...

    Official confirmation that these charity auctions will not grant the dreaded Yellow & Red banner.

    I encourage you all to dig deep here, and ensure that plenty of money is raised in this case for a very worthy cause. I myself have had many people in my life taken by this insidious disease and lost, not without a valiant fight.

    Only a few weeks ago I was informed that a maternal Aunt of mine was diagnosed Stage IV breast cancer which had metastasized to her bones. It is likely completely through her liver and brain also. No treatment available really, only pallative care. She is 52, 4 kids with two under 10 years of age.

    So besides APR LE air-fresheners: what do you guys hope will be up for grabs? Maybe we can still make it happen or maybe the item(s) of your desire are already sitting in the P&C auction vault ;)

    The effects of Cancer in Australia are wide spread and devastating for the people suffering it and their family and friends, a few years past my mother had to endure a mastectomy due to breast cancer.

    Anything we can do as Australians in any capacity to assist research, prevention and care is a good thing.

    This hits families hard. I lost my Aunt back in December and just found out last week my brother has lung cancer. :(

    I know the pain @Monsta_AU - My half-brother is battling stage IV cancer and was given 12-24 months and at the same time mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer and these last 2 years have been really tough :( Luckily mum won her battle but my bro is unlikely to win his... Cancer is a bitch :punch:

    Stay strong @Nico! I lost 2 uncles, one to throat cancer & the other lung :( We're very fortunate to live in a country with some of the best doctor's and treatments available and cancer can be beaten!

    Lost my Mum to lung cancer. I arrived at her house in Scotland from Perth, WA the day before she passed. Hopefully, she knew I was there. "Macmillan Specialist Care" provided night carers to relieve my sister, who was Mum's carer.
