CLAREMORE, OK (KCTV) -

A very young heart patient just got a special get-well from the Chiefs' own Dexter McCluster.

KyLeigh Walker, 6, is a big McCluster fan and underwent open heart surgery last week. He heard about her surgery and posted a get-well message on her dad's Facebook page.

"Hey KyLeigh. It's DMC. Heard you had open heart surgery. Want to wish you a speedy recovery and many blessings from DMC, Dexter McCluster, and my daughter. Get well soon," he says in the video.

The Walker's are from Claremore, OK, but said they have lots of family in Kansas City and are big Chiefs fans.

Her father, Jason Walker, said that he asked McCluster to send his daughter a picture, but he did one better.

"Today he (McCluster) went above and beyond," Walker wrote.

Kyleigh's father said she likes McCluster because he's a good player and a good singer. He added that she's doing very well after her surgery.
