Braylon Beam, a brain cancer patient who captured the nation’s hearts with his Ellen DeGeneres Show appearance and dancing-as-therapy videos promoting his #JustKeepDancing campaign. On June 9, 2015, facilitated by the Make-A-Wish foundation, the fervent Panthers fan signed a one-day contract to coach the team during Fan Fest.
In front of 50,000 fans, Braylon led the team through drills, called plays, and at the end of practice, proceeded to have a dance off with the team. Braylon continues to dance through his chemo sessions and remains positive during his fight.
He wants for every person who is battling a form of pediatric cancer to know that we are here to help any way possible to make their life better.
