Sometimes you see something cross your Twitter feed which you don't realize is truly special. But then there was the simple gesture EA Sports made to George Gring, a young man battling Burkitt's lymphoma, a rapidly growing cancer.
Thanks to aggressive treatments, George's cancer is currently in remission.
Gring became the Panthers' No. 1 Make-A-Wish draft choice thanks to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Wade Gring, George's younger brother and his acting agent negotiated a sweet deal for George which included a large bowl of candy.
During his time with the Panthers, Gring got to experience a practice with the team as well as answering questions in the post-game press conference. And now, thanks to one small gesture from EA, George gets to see himself in Madden NFL 15 complete with his 99 toughness rating.
There is no word on if George will actually be in the game in any form, but it's certainly an awesome gesture by the Panthers, the NFL, and EA Sports.
