Cam Newton Visits a Young Auburn Fan Battling a Heart Condition Whose Wish Was to Meet Him (Video)
The Carolina Panthers may be eliminated from playoff contention but that won’t stop QB Cam Newton from putting a smile on a young fan’s face.
On Tuesday, Cam Newton granted the Christmas wish of a 10-year-old fan fighting a severe heart condition when he visited Taylor Deckard at a hospital in Atlanta.
Courtney Cooper, a Lakewood Elementary school teacher, started a campaign on social media after Deckard told Cooper he “wished Cam Newton could come to his birthday party.”
“Austin may not ever make it to an Auburn football game but I know social media is a strong force that can make things happen,” Cooper wrote. “Let’s use it for something positive and spread this like wildfire and somehow, someway get the word to Cam Newton and give this precious little boy his wish.”
