Just three days after his mother, Jeannie Bowling, posted online asking for birthday cards, Cox has received more than 160 of them.

Bowling says cards have come from all over North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virigina, Tennessee, and even New York.

“He is loving the cards,” she told WWAY.

You may remember Cox from this heartwarming promposal. He was later voted by the Ashley High School student body as Prom King.

His birthday on Jan. 13.
