JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A teen battling cancer was speechless when his favorite quarterback came to visit.

A video posted to Facebook by the Tim Tebow Foundation shows Nathaniel Nelson, 13, decked out in Florida gear at Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. He was diagnosed with cancer in August.

The former University of Florida quarterback walked into the room and gave Nathaniel a big hug, bringing him to tears. For about a minute, Nathaniel couldn’t even speak.

Finally, at the end of the video, Nathaniel finally says, “Wow. Thank you for visiting me.”

“Of course,” says Tebow. “It’s my pleasure.”
