On July 29, a man by the name of Robert Griffin sent the following tweet to Bas, about his son Collin:
“@Bas My 11 year old son @ his first concert in 2015.Just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and all he wants is to meet J Cole.Please help me Bas”

Attached to the tweet was a photo of Griffin’s son with Bas and two others.
Fast-forward nearly two weeks later, and a series of photos Griffin uploaded to Twitter shows his son backstage with both Bas and J. Cole at a recent concert.
“@JColeNC Dreamville truly is a family. They made my sons dream come true tonight.I will never be able to thank you all enough. Much Love!,” Robert Griffin tweeted.

According to a GoFundMe page, which has raised nearly $17,000, Collin was recently diagnosed with a rare type of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma.
“For those of you who don’t know Collin personally, he is by far the most caring, compassionate, loving individual I’ve ever met in my life,” a description on the GoFundMe page reads. “He will go out of his way to help anyone in need at anytime and he never fails to put a smile on your face. He’s been so extremely strong so far and I know this is an uphill battle that we’re going to win.”
