Character Counts: Cam Newton brings an ice cream truck to early Halloween party for a boy with cancer

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is always been looking to help his community and on Friday night he made one boy’s party a memorable one.

Ten-year-old Elijah Hughes’ favorite holiday is Halloween. Due to a rare form of cancer, doctors aren’t sure if Elijah will make it to October 31. In order to make sure Elijah gets to celebrate Halloween, a community came together and held a party for him.

Newton heard about the party and drove an hour to surprise Elijah and the community.

If that wasn’t enough, Newton also brought an ice cream truck and brownies.
