6-year-old boy with cancer becomes an NFL coach for the day
Braylon Beam is no stranger to the spotlight. The six-year-old, who has been battling cancer since February, became a national celebrity by launching the #JustKeepDancing movement -- a campaign that scored him a guest spot on Ellen.
However, Beam had his sights set on a bigger project: becoming the coach for the Carolina Panthers. His wish was granted by none other than the Make A Wish Foundation, who helped facilitate Beam's one-day contract as head coach.
During the team's Fan Fest practice Friday night at Bank of American Stadium, Beam led the team in front of a packed stadium of over 55,000 fans.
Not only did Braylon get to hang out with his favorite NFL players on the field, but took the reigns during the press conference and received his own trading card.
But the real highlight of his day was giving a special locker room speech to the players. According to ESPN his heartfelt words made a huge impact.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
