Eminem Sends Heartfelt Message To Boy With Slim Shady Prosthetic Legs

"I'm not afraid"

10-year-old Teejay Stainer from Andover England is a huge Eminem fan. So much so, he has Eminem prosthetic legs in honor of his favorite rapper.


According to MTV, Teejay, "was born without a calf bone in his right leg, and had that lower leg amputated when he was 14 months old."

As part of a plan to cheer up their son, Teejay's dad, George, came up with a plan to connect his son with the famous rapper and raise awareness for other children in the same situation.

Soon enough the internet caught wind of the picture with Teejay's letter and according to The Daily Echo, "the image was shared more than 20,000 times across social networks as strangers around the world tried to help make his dream come true."

The message was heard loud and clear as Eminem and his team saw the image all the way back in Detroit.

Before Teejay knew it, Eminem had sent over a signed copy, appropriately, of his famous "Recovery" album with a message back to Teejay.

As per MTV, "The leg was made by Steeper Prosthetics’ Stephen Cox, which laminated an Eminem shirt onto the prosthetic."

His parents were also ecstatic, "We warned him Eminem might never see it as we didn't want him to be disappointed, but we were amazed by the reaction," they said.
