Young fan awaiting surgery shares heartwarming moment with Drew Brees
NEW ORLEANS - A young fan showed up to the New Orleans Saints training camp on Thursday with one goal in mind: the chance to see Drew Brees.
A staff member relayed the message to Brees that an 11-year-old named Joseph is scheduled to have surgery on Friday, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to see No. 9 before his procedure.
Photos shared to Twitter captured the heartwarming moment when the two met. Brees, who continues to prove how much of a Saint he can be off the field, signed a football and a paper jersey for Joseph.
