10-year-old Taylor Deckard is battling a severe heart condition and his Christmas wish was to meet Cam Newton.
Cam went to meet the young man and make his wish come true. Taylor saw his hero, jumped up and gave him a heartwarming hug. Cam looked like he was probably getting teary up there too!
Beautiful moment, watch below.
Fox 8 Reported:
On Wednesday, Deckard is expected to undergo surgery to have a stent implanted to combat his advanced pulmonary hypertension, WTVM reports. Doctors are unsure if he’ll survive the surgery.
But on Tuesday, Newton stopped by the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to cheer Taylor up before the big day.
Newton entered the hospital room and Taylor stood up and gave him a big hug. Newton just stood there, whispering words of encouragement and stroking his hair.
During the meeting, Newton gave him an Under Armour bag full of goodies and several signed items. (src: http://myfox8.com/2016/12/28/cam-newton-grants-10-year-old-boy-battling-heart-conditions-christmas-wish/)
