CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Coach Braylon Beam was there for every step of the Carolina Panthers' journey to the Super Bowl, but it's his own personal journey that has inspired the men on that team, the people in the community and even people across the country. 

The Lincoln County 7-year-old is battling cancer, but that hasn't stopped him from cheering on his favorite team while inspiring others to just keep dancing through whatever they're going through.

Braylon and his family would like to give back to other families battling pediatric cancer, so they have started their own foundation called Bring It 4 Braylon.

The foundation's first event, Cruisin' 4 Braylon, takes place on Sunday, April 17. It will be a cruise on Lake Norman featuring special guests Mike Tolbert, Thomas Davis and Rod Smith of the Carolina Panthers, as well as NASCAR driver Mike Wallace.

  • She said: It's time for Panthers to invest in secondary, starting in 2018 NFL draft

    Saturday, April 21 2018 1:24 PM EDT2018-04-21 17:24:58 GMT

    Here's a revolutionary thought: The Carolina Panthers should invest in their secondary. And not with mid- to late-round picks or development projects, either. On April 26, the first night of the 2018 NFL Draft, Carolina should take a defensive back at No. 24. A day-one starter. A leader.
