Thanks to Denver Broncos tight end Vernon Davis, we were reminded Saturday that life transcends football.

One day before Super Bowl 50, the veteran met with 18-year-old Broncos fan Alex Walter, a cancer and heart transplant patient, at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.

Davis had hung out with Alex on Tuesday and given him a signed football. The tight end returned four days later with an even greater gift: tickets to the big game. Alex gave Davis a bracelet he made, which seemed to really touch the former San Francisco 49er.

When asked about the exchange, Davis teared up with Alex standing alongside him:

"It just means a lot to me," he said, "and I know it means a lot to him."
