Pies big man Mason Cox has won the hearts of many fans this year and it looks like the trend is continuing to grow, reaching out to a sick young Collingwood fan, Connor Camilleri, in hospital.

On Twitter Greg Camilleri, the father of the boy, posted a photo of Connor in hospital hoping that the football club would see it. All he wanted was a shout out to “lift his spirits” but he got more.

Connor thought the club didn’t have the time to “worry about him as they have to get Mason Cox back fit for this week.”

The 211cm American saw this and tweeted back, “Too busy to give back to supporters!? No such thing! Are ya’ll in Melbourne? And whats on tomorrow at 5pm? Ill come in and say hi mate.”

On Wednesday night, Cox made his way down to the Royal Children’s Hospital with a pair of game boots that he has worn and merchandise from New Era Australia.

Since then, Cox has received more than 2000 interactions on Twitter as the big fella tries to get over his general soreness in order to face North Melbourne.
