Through three electrifying years in the NFL, Odell Beckham Jr. has accumulated a lot of fans, but one needed him a little more than the others.
One of the New York Giants receiver’s biggest fans, 9-year-old Jayro Ponce, is battling a rare form of cancer at Ronald McDonald House in Amarillo, Texas.
Danny Richburg, father of Giants center Weston Richburg, reached out to Beckham via social media this week to share a message from “Team Jayro” asking to come meet the young fan and “fulfill one of his dreams.”
Beckham noticed the post the following morning and responded “How can I make it happen?” on Tuesday.
By Saturday, Jayro and OBJ figured out how to make it happen.
According to Art Stapleton of USA Today, Beckham flew in Friday to meet Jayro and spend time with his family with no media present or aware of the trip.
Donations to Team Jayro can be made on his GoFundMe page.
