GREEN BAY — David Zloch is a Packers fan and his dad is currently battling two forms of cancer. Not only that, but he is also a huge Packers and AJ Dillon fan.

David said his dad has both brain and throat cancer, but beat them both. Now, his brain cancer is coming back and he has to start chemo again.

With Christmas coming up, David shared a Tik Tok asking for AJ Dillon to send a jersey to his dad for Christmas. David said his dad calls Dillon "quadzilla" because of his strong legs and said his dad talks about Dillon all the time.

Lucky enough, Dillon saw the TikTok and did what David asked. He shared a video on his page of a jersey autographed for David's dad and wrote "Prayers to you and your family," "You got this," "Nobody fights alone," and even signed it "quadzilla."

David saw Dillon's post and shared a new one thanking him and even posted a video of his dad crying as he watched Dillon's video.

Then, Dillon took the extra step and shared the GoFundMe for David's dad on Twitter.

With the new year beginning soon, David's dad has to restart his insurance deductibles and premiums which have again gone up. David and his family created the GoFundMe to raise money for the deductibles.

As of Thursday afternoon, the family has raised $3,485 of an $8,000 goal. To make a donation, click here.
