Beam family receives a new 2015 Ford Fusion Hybird - June 2105

Six year old Braylon Beam is dancing his way through chemotherapy as he fights the tumor on his optic nerve. Braylon and his dad decided that dance was the best way to boost their spirits during the treatments. Their dancing attracts a lot of attention on the "Bring it 4 Braylon" site, even attention from people like Ellen DeGeneres. Braylon and his parents danced onto her stage at the beginning of May. While on the show Braylon got some goodies from his favorite team, the Carolina Panthers and a special message from the coach. Ellen surprised them with a brand new 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid! It was our pleasure to meet this amazing family and help them along their journey. The Beam family stopped by Keith Hawthorne Ford last Saturday morning to pick up their new car and hang out with the guys for a while! Keep fighting Braylon!! ‪
