Cam's Big Heart Makes Sick Boy's Wish Come True

"Austin wished for Cam Newton to come to his birthday", Cooper said. I've written about his flamboyant clothing and subtle shift from the Black Lives Matter movement to the dark side, but as the year comes to a close I can't deny that Cam Newton just might be a good dude.

Deckard's physical education teacher, Courtney Cooper, posted about the boy's condition and his desire to meet Newton on social media a week before the Carolina QB came to the hospital.

For Taylor Deckard, a 10yo boy battling a severe heart condition, his Christmas wish was to meet @CameronNewton.

"Just before Thanksgiving, I was headed to an Auburn football game", Cooper wrote on Facebook.

CAM NEWTON MADE a young boy's Christmas wish come true this week, when he made a surprise visit to him in hospital. In fact, it is because of social media that Newton even got involved. The boy gives Newton a huge hug, and the quarterback is taken aback, stroking Austin's hair and hugging him back. At Auburn, Newton won the Heisman Trophy and led the Tigers to their second national championship during the 2010 season.

Newton spent a few hours with Deckard, and part of the time was spent playing with Nerf guns, Panthers.com reported. "I don't know but maybe the word could get to Newton and make one sick little boy happy". I know I will never forget this moment, that hug and this video. "And I know Taylor Austin Deckard's family feels the same way".

Austin's surgery has been moved to this Friday.
