(SL) – 10-year-old Taylor Austin Deckard got the surprise of a lifetime after getting a visit from NFL MVP Cam Newton.
Taylor suffers from advanced pulmonary hypertension, and the Auburn Tigers fan was forced to spend his holiday at Atlanta’s Egleston Hospital awaiting surgery. Apparently, Taylor is 100 percent obsessed with Cam. He writes all of his school papers about Cam and even decorated his room with Cam related memorabilia.
Taylor’s physical education teacher, Courtney Cooper, posted about Austin’s wish to meet Newton. A week later Cam, who is from Atlanta and likely home for the holiday, was at the hospital to meet the little fella! Video of the encounter shows Austin sitting in his bed with his Tigers jersey on when Newton walks in….see the video for the rest!
