A mom from Denver wrote heartfelt letter to Fetty Wap thanking him for giving her 10 year-old son Jayden the courage not to wear his prosthetic eye. Incase you didn’t know at birth Fetty Wap was diagnosed with a rare eye disease called, congenital glaucoma, which caused him to have one of his eyes removed. For most of his life the New Jersey rapper, wore a prosthetic eye however stopped when his rap career began to take off to maintain a unique image.

Like Fetty Wap, 10 year-old Jayden wore a prosthetic eye after being diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, a rare tumor in the retina. After Jayden learned of Fetty Wap he was inspired to take out his prosthetic eye. His mother wrote a Facebook post thanking the “Trap Queen” rapper for being such an inspiration to her son.

Check out the touching letter below.

The Denver mom wrote on Facebook:

(Warning: long sentimental post ahead) Today I am forever thankful to a young man named Willie Maxwell aka Fetty Wap. While his music is catchy (not always agree with his lyrics but hey who am I to judge…), I’m not necessarily his fan (although Trap Queen is my jam), BUT today I’m his biggest fan.
Many close friends, and of course our family know that Jayden was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma at the age of 1. In result of that he had his right eye removed 2 weeks after his 1st bday. He’s worn a prosthetic eye since then. He has always been terrified of taking it out and would not be caught without it…and then comes along Fetty Wap… Similar to Jayden he lost an eye at a young age and along the way he decided that he didn’t want to wear his prosthetic eye anymore, so he stopped. Jayden, let it be known, is a Fetty Wap fan, a real fan, not like me ha! Well, today, after weeks of asking, Jayden is venturing the world without his prosthetic. I of course am a wreck because this world can be cruel, but so proud of our Boogies. This young rapper unknowingly gave Jayden something we weren’t able to give him-the confidence to be different- and I am grateful to him. Thanks to Fetty Wap for saying F the world this is me, and for helping make our baby boy just a little more remarkable than he already is. And we’ll be purchasing his album, a small thank you to him for changing Jayden’s life forever.”
