MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - It was a dream come true for a St. Jude patient. Markell Gregoire always dreamed of being famous. Now, he is.

The 13 year-old helped NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell announce his favorite team's draft pick Thursday in New York City.

Markell is from Louisiana, and a huge New Orleans Saints fan. He's spent a lot of time in Memphis being treated for osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

According to a tweet from an NFL spokesman, Saints Coach Sean Payton even called New York to speak with Gregoire to thank him for his help.
