Cam Newton has a humanitarian side most people don’t know about

Screen Shot 2020-07-01 at 6.46.25 AMCam Newton has been very vocal on social media since the announcement that the Patriots has signed the Free Agent to a 1 year contract. Determined to prove to Carolina they really lost a really good dude Cam has made several videos expressing some pint up agression.

However, rarely has Cam neglected opportunity to pay it forward when it comes to kind deeds especially when a child is involved. Recently, in the midst of all the hoopla at the “Peak of his career the NFL quaterback Cam Newton heard a 10 year old boy had spent Christmas fighting a serious heart condition.

Two days later on his day off, he chartered a flight and flew out to surprise him. This is what happened when they met.

Twitter immediately reacts

These twitter comments really speak volume on how Cam’s fans really feel about him and the people who really know who Cam Newton is and what he stands for are not surprised at this good deed.

Fun Fact. Did you know that Cam’s Newton’s dad’s church is in Newnan, GA and Cam is often spotted in Fairburn at the local Cracker Barrell on Senoia Rd? It’s also not unlikely to spot Cam working out near Camp Creek. It’s not a good idea to prejudge Icons and NFL star like Cam Newton based on blogs and media reviews rather than knowing the side of their  heart.

What are your thoughts? Did you always know that Cam Newton was a stand up kind of dude or did you get caught up with the media’s portrayal of Cam being a selfish know it all Diva?
