Robertson is no stranger to Saints fans. A video shared on the Saints website last year of Robertson interacting with went viral. His enthusiasm and smile are infectious.
Most importantly, he's determination and joy to live are most inspiring.
Jarrius suffers from a chronic liver disease known as biliary atresia. It effects his growth.
Per Mike Triplett of espn.com, Robertson received a liver transplant at one year old, spending time in and out of medical facilities ever since. He even spent an entire year of his life in a coma.
He's currently on a waiting list for another liver transplant, embracing life and his favorite team with every opportunity.
Jarrius will join the team this weekend in Kansas City for their battle with the Chiefs as an honorary member of the team, along with some social media reporting.
"You don't have to tell me twice!"
I can't stop smiling.
