HENDERSON, Tennessee (KXAN) - Sunday marks a very special day for mothers across the globe. Robby Novak, age 9, also known as "Kid President," issued his latest video message " An open letter to Mom's from Kid President " on Thursday.
Brad Montague, the brains behind the " Kid President Campaign," is Novak's brother-in-law.
Montague says Novak who lives in Henderson Tennessee, was diagnosed with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (01), a rare disease that results in brittle bones, has caused the 9-year-old over 70 breaks since birth.
His message for mothers is simple. In his latest video released Thursday, Novak says, "It's hard to grow up." He goes on later in the video to explain, "Sometimes we just need moms to tell us everything's going to be ok."
Osteogenesis Imperfecta hasn't put a damper on Novak's sense of humor or love for dance though, which he instructs mothers to do more of. His Kid President role has allowed him to meet many people, including the commander-in-chief, President Barack Obama in April.
Kid President believes in mothers and their power to change the world to offer up the following wisdom, "If every mom in the world knew how awesome they were, every problem in the world would be fixed."
In his final thoughts the wise-beyond-his-years Novak says, "From kids everywhere, thanks for believing in us, putting up with us and straight up loving us.
