He left the hospital two weeks ago and told his sister his dying wish was to speak to President Trump.
His sister, Bridgette Hoskie, managed to reach Trump through supporters emailing the White House. Then, on Tuesday night, Barrett received a call from President Trump.
"Mr. President, through thick and thin, you know there’s been a lot of thicks, and there’s been a lot of thins, I support you," Barrett told President Trump.
Trump told Barrett that he's a "champ" and told him to keep fighting.
"You’re my kind of man, Jay. … I’m very proud of you. I’ll talk to you again, Jay, OK? You keep that fight going. We both fight," Trump responded.
According to The New Haven Register, Barrett was also called by Trump's son, Eric Trump and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regional chief Lynee Patton. Barrett said Eric told him they're "pulling for me and praying."
"He really did live one of the best weeks of his life last week. That phone call meant everything to him," Hoskie said.
