Adorable moment Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes make young cancer survivor’s day… as superstar Chiefs pair pose for photos – and sign a shirt hailing ‘Taylor Swift’s boyfriend’

Chiefs fans are praising Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes and their teammates for taking time to chat with a young cancer survivor. 

A Make-A-Wish kid named Jackson visited Kansas City’s HQ with his family during pre-season practice Tuesday, where he was seen chatting to players and coach Andy Reid.

‘The guys got to spend some time with Make-A-Wish kiddo Jackson yesterday who, after 7 rounds of aggressive treatment, just recently got to say he is officially cancer free,’ the Chiefs captioned an adorable video on X.

‘How you doing man?’ Mahomes asked the youngster, who was decked out in Chiefs merch.

Kelce chimed in, ‘Dudes and dudettes, give me some love,’ as he high-fived the kids.

‘You enjoying the day?’ the tight end asked.

In a separate clip, Reid was seen putting a cap on Jackson’s head, before placing another hat on backwards.

‘Then they don’t know if you’re coming or going,’ he said matter-of-factly.

Running back Isiah Pacheco was also seen getting down low to chat to the kids, as they posed for photos in the players’ helmets.

One of the children, presumably Jackson’s sister, also showed off her t-shirt that hailed Kelce, aka ‘Taylor Swift’s boyfriend.’

‘Awesome! So happy for that family and Jackson! Class act from the @Chiefs,’ one fan commented on the clip.

‘I could not pick a favorite part of this video if I tried. Everyone treated them with such warmth and kindness. The world needs more of this,’ another chimed in.

A third pointed out, ‘Mahomes and Pacheco getting down on the kids’ level rather tower over them,’ while another fan wrote, ‘What a way to celebrate Jackson’s milestone! Go Chiefs!!’

Earlier in the day, defensive tackle Chris Jones insisted Kelce still has ‘four or five more’ playing years ahead of him.

‘We can’t let TK go. It’s like we retire, we’ve got to retire together. Give me at least six, four years, then we’ll talk about it,’ he said, when asked about retirement rumors swirling around the tight end.

Kelce, for his part, said he wants to keep playing ‘until the wheels fall off.’

‘I really can’t put a timeframe on (retirement). I love coming to work every single day,’ he said this week, per The Athletic.

‘Hopefully, that doesn’t happen anytime soon,’ he went on.

‘Obviously, I know there’s opportunities outside of football for me. You have to keep in perspective that I’m still a little kid when I come into this building, man.

‘I know I’m 34 years old, but I have a love to do this right here, in the middle of the heat in June. I love coming to work every single day.’
