New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 17, 1996, New Braunfels, Texas owner joins in ba OMCtRSOQj JV ,, —HiHerald-Zeitung O Friday, May 17,1996 □ against cancer By TERRI BROTZE Special to the Herald-Zeitung Bradzoil 10-Minute Change at 988 Mission Drive plans to change the pace of not only your oil and filter change this Saturday, but also the way businesses are donating money for cancer research and local programs. In an all our effort to generate needed dollars for the local unit of the American Cancer Society, owner Cameron Bradfute says their business will donate IOO percent of the days earning to the cancer society- “Pennzoil is donating the oil for the .day. We’re donating every penny gen-:* elated from every service we provide at J Bradzoil,” he said. All day tomorrow, patrons will receive an oil and filter change, all flu-:< id levels will be checked and the chas-• sy lubricated. In addition, each car will ‘ be vacuumed and windows washed all ' in IO minutes for $2S. ‘‘Normally we have 70-80 cars nm through here on an average. Last year’s lube-a-thon brought in ISS cars, more than double the business. Our goal this year is 200 cars bringing in $S,000 for the cancer society,” said Bradfute. And if your tummy leads you more than a good cause, the cancer society provides donuts and coffee in the morning compliments of Becky’s, sausages from the New Braunfels Smokehouse wrapped in tortillas from the Adobe Cafe, and soft drinks from Wuest’s and Dr. Todd Smith all afternoon along with homemade goodies to tickle your appetite. TCBY joins the effort with a tart filled with your favorite yogurt •flavors for the younger sweet tooth. Caps and coozies will also be given to all patrons along with other surprises. “It’ll be a veiy festive time. We had so much fun last year, with all the volunteers and customers. It’s a day when you don’t feel like your even working. I’m glad we can do this for my uncle,” Bradfute said It was Bradfute’s uncle that put the fire in his saddle for die cancer society. “He was instrumental in getting our oil change business off the ground. Donna Mechler 1)9 is Now Behind Jim Gabbard and Randy Kasberg encourage folks to take part in last year’s Lube-a-Thon. Without him, it never would have hap-    most of his life, J. W.

A. Bradfute who quit Western Auto after 23 years with a child in high school and one in college,” he said. That’s when Bradzoil 10-Minute Change was bom. The first location was built IO years ago at 988 Mission Drive, it’s current location, followed by three other locations in Seguin, San Marcos and Schertz. “It was a long struggle at first. But we provided good dependable, quick service to our customers, and made it work,” Bradfute said. The success of the growing business came just at the time J.W. was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. “He was a man’s man,” Bradfute remembers. “When he found out about the disease, he responded just like I thought he would. He said he was going to fight it first.” And he did. “Cancer treatments are very painful. He went through radiation. I watched while every vein in his arm collapsed., every vein in his leg collapsed from intravenous treatment. But he continued to the very end, until it got into his lymph nodes and spread all over his body.” In the end, J.W. died with is brothers by his side. “He was loosing control of his mind and control of his body,” said Bradfute. He was a man who was always in control. He fought it as long as he could. Then he died. Maybe he was in control even then; more than we know.” Cameron Bradfute believes his uncle lived for two years with the disease due to the advancements in treatment through research provided by the American Cancer Society. “We had two more years with him.?’ He says it’s a disease that knows no strangers. “Everyone’s life is touched by cancer, whether they know it or not Everyone know someone who’s suffered or died from cancer. If we all pull together we can stamp it out in our lifetime,” he said. Tomorrow’s lube-a-thon begins at 8 a.m. and cranks down at 5 p.m. (or until the last car is serviced.) The Cancer Society invites you to help in their effort to save die life of someone you know. AftQIQUEFABM EQUIPMENT SHOW    (    ..
