Awesome Dude Cam Newton Teams with Make-A-Wish to Make Kid’s Dream Come True (Video)
Cam Newton has been the subject of a lot of bullsh*t criticism over the past year. People called him a “bad sport” for not wanting to talk to media after losing the biggest game of his life, but completely ignored how gracious he was with Peyton Manning. They called him a bad role model for children because he celebrated touchdowns, even though guys like J.J. Watt do the same thing and get celebrated as heroes.
The thing is, Cam Newton is actually a fantastic role model for children. If anybody tries to tell you otherwise, show them this video. It’s about an 11-year-old kid named Noah who has a whole host of medical problems related to something called Klippel–Trénaunay syndrome, or KTS. When the Make-A-Wish Foundation asked Noah what his wish would be, he said meeting Cam Newton. And when Make-A-Wish contacted Cam Newton to see if he’d be willing to make Noah’s dream come true, he said absolutely.
Here’s the thing, though. Cam didn’t just show up, sign some stuff, and take a few photos. He hung out with Noah and his family all night, bowling with them, horsing around, and then taking them to a Charlotte Hornets game.
Take a look:
Man, Cam Newton isn’t just a good role model for kids. He’s a good role model for adults too.
