LINCOLN COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - Happy birthday, BJ Correll!
BJ turns 15 today.
BJ is at home in Lincoln County right now. Doctors sent him there two weeks ago after saying there were no more options for treatment in his long fight with leukemia.
His former teachers at North Lincoln Middle reached out to ask me if they could "use me" to send him a surprise birthday message.
Of course. I love this.
I get message after message about BJ. There is lots of love headed his way. He's a strong kid with amazing support. Find his Facebook page HERE.
We're all singing for you this morning, BJ. Hope you're surprised.
Also, here's another video not yet shown. One of our parents was able to get a few Tar Heels basketball players to wish BJ a happy birthday.
