Teejay Stainer is 10-year boy living in England who had his lower right leg amputated when he was 14 months old after being born with without a calf bome. With the help of prosthetics, he's lived a relatively normal life, walking, climbing trees and even playing sports. He has been a fan of Eminem since he was 2 years old. He has drawn so much inspiration from Eminem's lyrics that he got customized Eminem prosthetic legs made for him.
Over the summer, His parents photographed him holding up a sign that read, "These are my Eminem legs I've had made. My wish is for Eminem to see them," and uploaded the image to Facebook, after which it spread like wildfire across social media.
A couple months later, Teejay received a package in the mail: an autographed copy of Recovery sent by Shady himself. "To Teejay," he wrote, "I saw your pic and read your message! Thanks for the support!"
Teejay was stoked AF. "I was amazed when I saw the CD. I just wanted to thank him for getting me through the difficult times and show him how dedicated I am. I think he sent me that album in particular because of the recovery that I've made."
A young boy who had his prosthetic legs customised with the face of his hero Eminem was thrilled when the rap superstar contacted him after he saw the pictures on Twitter. Teejay Stainer is an amputee who was told he might never be able to walk after being born without a calf bone in his right leg. The 10-year-old credits Eminem's lyrics with making him feel brave enough to thrive in life. But he was stunned when 'the real Slim Shady' dropped him a line. His proud parents used Facebook to upload a photo of Teejay holding up a sign, which read: "These are my Eminem legs I've had made. My wish is for Eminem to see them." 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. And the year six school boy was 'amazed' when a postal package arrived at his home in Andover, Hampshire, featuring a copy of Eminem's Recovery album, which had been sent and personally signed by his favourite rapper. The 42-year-old star, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, wrote: "To Teejay, I saw your pic and read your message! Thanks for the support!" Brave Teejay, whose favourite songs by the rapper include Survival and Guts over Fear, said: "I was amazed when I saw the CD.
