New Orlean Saints 15-year old super fan now gets his prayers answered.

Jarrius “JJ” Robertson has been battling a chronic liver disease known as biliary atresia. Over the past year the Saints energetic super fan, who has dance moves that would give the best a run for their money inΒ a dance off, has made appearances on ESPN and made a basket in this past year’s NBA Celebrity game in New Orleans during All-Star Weekend. The kid has a spirit that everyone roots for and knowing he needed a transplant coming from a kid the same size and nearly same age things seemed bleak.

Not for Robertson who believes he should live “everyday as my last.” He prayed on it and said when it’s time, his transplant would come. Knowing God would answer his prayers today he’s finally getting his transplant today.

He took to Twitter earlier today expressing his gratitude.

“Today is the DAY! thx everybody for the support and prayers – God is good! IT TAKES LIVES TO SAVE LIVES πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»,” he posted on Twitter.

A GoFundMe for his medical expenses is still running.
