A 14 -year-old cancer patient had a birthday to remember recently when rapper Drake sent him a personalised video message.
The youngster, Zelek Murray, who has a rare form of brain cancer, celebrated his birthday in a hospital bed. But Drake made his young fan’s day extra special with the surprise birthday shout out.
“Zelek, what’s up? My brother Mustafa hit me the other day and informed me of the extremely tough situation that you’re fighting through. We both thought it would be a great thing if I got to send you some love and some admiration and some respect,” Drake said in the clip that Zelek’s mother, Temeka, shared online.
“I can’t imagine how tough you have to be. Mustafa left me know that you’re a fan of mine; well, I’m a fan of you. I’m a fan of people with heart and I can tell that you have a lot of heart. So, I just wanted to tell you to stay strong, I love you and I appreciate you.”
Temeka also shared another video with awestruck teen reacting to the message from Drake.
She was also grateful that the entertainer took time out of his schedule for such a sweet deed.
“His strength is like no other and yes he has his good days and bad days, BUT THIS is exactly what he needed to lift up his Spirit,” Temeka said. “Because you took time out of your day to put a smile on a 14yr old boys face… you are my hero… WE ARE FOREVER THANKFUL.”
