Pharrell sends touching message to TX boy with cancer

Posted: Updated:

Support is coming in from all over for a 9-year-old with cancer from San Antonio – even from a famous face.

Damon Billeck was diagnosed with osteosarcoma bone cancer, and says the hit song Happy by Pharrell keeps his spirits up.

A family friend with connections recently asked Pharrell for an autograph for Billeck.

The singer went above and beyond the call, and instead, gave Billeck a personal, uplifting message. 

The kindness toward the boy didn't stop there -- when McKinney teenager Morgan Souder heard about Billeck's story, she decided to cut her hair and donate it to Locks of Love in his honor.

Souder had been growing it for about seven years and had enough hair to make four children's wigs.
