Former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton was able to make a young fan’s dream come true through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
An 11-year-old boy named Noah was born with Klippel-Trenaunay Syndrome (KTS), a rare congenital vascular disorder which causes abnormal growth of soft and bone tissue. His left leg is three centimeters wider and longer than his right, and at age 7, he was diagnosed with a protein deficiency and frequent blood clots.
During a hospital stay last year, his mother’s colleague suggested Noah enter the Make-A-Wish program. Noah’s dream? To meet Newton.
Their day together was captured in the video below.
“Whenever I’m down, I can think of that (meeting Newton) and how special of a moment that was to me,” Noah said.
