Cam Newton helps family check item off deceased son’s bucket list

Turns out Superman has a super heart. Even with all his responsibilities as the quarterback of a Super Bowl participant, Cam Newton took the time to create a moment with a family who has followed his story through their own personal tragedy.

Via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review, Newton connected this week with the family of Scot Sieczko, who passed due to cancer in 2014, before he was able to check meeting the Panthers quarterback off his bucket list.

Scot’s mother Trae was introduced to Cam Monday, and received a signed jersey, and was left as impressed as we are.

“Once I saw Cam, I didn’t say a whole lot, but thank you and please beat the Broncos on Sunday,’” Sieczko said. “I still feel like I’m in la la land dreaming. He’s super nice, super sweet. I know he’s so busy this week, so for him to take a couple minutes is amazing.”

Trae made it her mission to fulfill her son’s dream, and when the news made it to local 49ers officials, they alerted Carolina. And Cam being the hero he is, fit it into his impossible schedule.
