Former New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning surprised a very special super fan.
The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback visited with 7-year-old Shane McCooe. The boy is bravely battling cancer at Hackensack Medical Center. The two got to sit down and talk one-on-one.
“Not even my dad has met him. He has only seen him in videos,” McCooe said.
“Shane is an unbelievable kid and is going through a lot,” said Manning.
The pair posed for some photos together and McCooe even got some autographs.
The meeting was made possible through a partnership with The Children's Place.
