Eminem may not talk too much in public but he's got a heart of gold. The rapper replied to a 10-year-old British superfan, who named his prosthetic leg after Eminem, in the most touching way.
Parents of Teejay Stainer told the UK's Daily Echo that their son, who calls Eminem his hero received a signed copy of the Grammy-winning artist's 2012 'Recovery' album as an ode to the recovery stage the boy has made.
"To Teejay, I saw your pic and read your message! Thanks for the support!” Eminem wrote on the CD.
Teejay’s parents posted a photo of their son with his prosthetic leg covered with the rapper’s image to their Facebook account last month [September] in the hopes that Slim Shady would see it.
“My name is Teejay Stainer from Andover England. I wear a prosthetic leg. These are my Eminem legs I’ve had made. My wish is for Eminem to see them. Thank you,” the adorable little boy’s note read.

Teejay’s parents told the news outlet that they were “amazed” to receive Eminem’s package adding that the rapper’s curse-filled lyrics don’t bother them, because their son "likes the tracks because of their meanings and we’ve never heard him swear"
As for the reason why Teejay is such a big fan of Eminem? His parents said it’s because Teejay says "the rapper is someone that has come from nothing and made something of himself.”
The 2002 film '8 Mile' was loosely based on Eminem’s life and rise to fame.
