Former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow surprised a young boy suffering from cancer and the video of the amazing moment is going viral. 

The clip - shared by the Tim Tebow Foundation on Facebook - has been watched 4 million times since Tuesday night. 

Nathaniel Nelson, 13, was so overwhelmed seeing his gridiron hero, he burst into tears in his hospital bed.

As you can see in the clip, Nathaniel is a huge fan of the Florida Gators, where Tebow starred for four years, winning two national titles.

His battle with cancer in Jacksonville was documented earlier this month by First Coast News.

Tebow, who gained immense popularity speaking openly about his Christian faith, now runs a foundation that seeks to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.

Last winter, the foundation held prom nights throughout the country for special needs children. 

Tebow is currently not on an NFL roster after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles after preseason.
