Cam Newton shares sweet moment with young fan fighting cancer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Cam Newton shared a sweet moment with a young fan fighting cancer during the Carolina Panthers’ crushing 44-16 win over the Washington Redskins Sunday.

TV cameras caught Newton visiting Braylon Beam‬ on the sidelines at the game and giving him a “chest bump.” Newton is Beam’s favorite Panther.

Beam, 6, of Lincoln County, has a tumor on his optic nerve. He made headlines earlier this year with his dance moves and even made an appearance on “The Ellen Show.”

Beam also signed a 1-day contract as the Panthers’ head coach and danced with players after a Fan Fest practice.

The Panthers are currently 10-0 for the first time in franchise history. They face the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving.
