Ten-year-old Teejay Stainer, who was born without a calf bone in his leg, has been a fan of the Stan star since he was two years old and he sports a prosthetic leg featuring a picture of Eminem.

Stainer started listening to the rapper when he was a toddler because his music helped him sleep and over the years it has given him strength. His parents recently posted a photo of the young boy's prosthetic online with a message reading, "These are my Eminem legs I've had made. My wish is for Eminem to see them."

The young boy's parents were shocked when the 42 year old responded by sending an autographed copy of his Recovery album with a message reading, "To Teejay, I saw your pic and read your message! Thanks for the support!"

"I just wanted to thank him for getting me through the difficult times and show him how dedicated I am," Stainer says. "I think he sent me that album in particular because of the recovery that I've made."

"His father and I are both hip hop fans, so he's been listening to Eminem nearly all his life," Stainer's mother added. "We have always taught him to listen to the lyrics and their meanings and as Eminem raps about surviving difficult times, it makes him feel brave."
