Lil Nas X promised to cover the medical expenses for a Georgia teen battling Lyme disease since November.
According to his Go Fund Me page, 15-year-old David has been in “vigorous battle” against Lyme disease. At this point, the condition is “ravaging his nervous system and has weakened his body to the point that he can no longer walk across the room unassisted. As a result, he can no longer go to school.” As you can imagine medical care is very expensive, David’s parent say they need $20,000 just to cover out-of-pocket expenses for his care in 2019.
A family friend recently turned to Twitter and contacted Nas X since he and David are from the same small town school. “Hey @LilNasX! My good friend David goes to the high school you went to and graduated from!! (go lions!!).” Morgan wrote in the first tweet. “Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with Lyme disease last year and his family is struggling to pay the medical bills.”She then followed up and wrote, “ I know you might not see this, but is there anything you could go to help?? it would mean absolutely everything to his family.”
To the friend’s surprise, the rapper replied back, “I’m gonna pay the remainder of the 20k I need his family’s info. DM me.” David’s GoFundMe raised around $7,000, which means the “Old Town Road” artist will contribute close $13,000. What a classy young man!
