By CCN.com: Fortnite legend Ninja just gave one of his youngest fans an unforgettable shout-out, inspiring a little boy from the United Kingdom as he recovers from having multi-level medial surgery.

Ninja, real name Tyler Blevins, took to Twitter to respond to a video by KingoCraigo, a fellow streamer who broadcasts Fortnite gameplay on Twitch.

KingoCraigo, a father of two, posted a video of his young son Finley using a walking frame four weeks after the boy had had surgery. “He’s getting more and more confident,” captioned KingoCraigo, who also said that his son had instructed him to send the video to Ninja and TimTheTatMan, who are two of the boy’s favorite streamers.

Much to KingoCraigo and his son’s surprise, the two streamers did reply.

Ninja said, “This kid is incredible!” and told him to “keep it up,” while TimTheTatMan said, “Love it! Keep fighting!”

KingoCraigo tweeted to say that he and Finley were “crying” with happiness and they were also surprised to see that the video of Finley walking had gotten more than 300,000 views.

The streaming dad was happy that 300,000 more people now knew about cerebral palsy, Finley’s condition, too.

KingoCraigo had been taking a break from streaming on Twitch to support Finley after his operations but he and “the boy” did stream Fortnite for a short amount of time, thanking everyone for their support.
