Saints Surprise Ailing 14 Year Old Superfan With A Contract And Trip [WATCH]
Here is a real feel good story out of the New Orleans Saints football camp. Today on Good Morning America, Saints head coach Sean Payton and quarterback Drew Brees made a little boy and Saints super fan's year with a once in a lifetime offer.
Fourteen year old Jarrius Robertson is suffering from biliary atresia, which is a chronic liver disease that affects his physical growth. Robertson has been in and out of the hospital since he was one year old, and has already had a liver transplant. Now he needs another.
During his stay one time last year at Ochsner Hospital For Children in New Orleans, a few Saints players visited the hospital, and Robertson left such an impression that the Saints decided to make him part of the organization.
This morning on Good Morning America via satellite, Sean Payton and Drew Brees delivered the news to young Robertson that they are signing him to a contract to be part of the team, and that he would be traveling to Kansas City with the team this Sunday when they take on the Chiefs.
They also made Robertson the director of all media for this Sunday's game. Watch this and get ready to smile and feel good about this awesome thing they did for this little boy.
