UPDATE (1/25/16): To see an excerpt from the original feature AND JJ and Cristian’s reunion on Wild Card Weekend 2016, click here.
Two and a half years ago, we posted a blog entry about our newest “NFL Films Presents” episode, featuring J.J. Watt. NFL Films was lucky enough to be in Splendora, Texas when J.J. Watt surprised a young fan, Cristian Beasley, who was battling cancer. The full episode of “NFL Films Presents: J.J Watt” is available here.
Cristian is now healthier and looking forward to his last chemotherapy treatment at the end of March.
Just recently, thanks to a generous donation of game tickets to the Texas Children’s Hospital, Cristian was able to attend the Houston Texans game against the Kansas City Chiefs on wildcard weekend. One of our cinematographers, who was there to shoot footage of the game, happened to catch the moment when J.J. Watt was reunited with Cristian.
Click below to see the moment when NFL Films caught a very surprised Cristian on camera, once again.
