Don’t let the muscles fool you — Dwayne Johnson aka ‘The Rock’!is nothing but a big softie!
The 42-year-old star experienced an Easter miracle of his own yesterday, April 5, when he met a young fan who battled cancer and idolized the one-time pro wrestler.
The ‘Furious 7’ star shared the story along with a picture of him with the fan (above):
“Cool story to share on Easter… After my workout I’m driving in my pick up and notice these kids in the rearview mirror screaming and running after my truck. Thought to myself, “Should I stop or keep driving?”.I stopped. I hop out of my truck and this kid runs up to me, hugs the hell outta me and says it’s been his life’s dream to meet me and tell me how much I’ve inspired him to fight cancer (Hodgkin’s lymphoma) and hardcore chemo and stem cell transplant treatments.
“He was a little teary-eyed and said for months and months all he’s wanted to do was find me and say this face-to-face. I told him what it meant to me to hear this story. I thanked him, hugged him (and his friends), took a few pics, got back in my truck and drove away.
“As I’m driving I start shaking my head (and tearing up) at how fragile life is and how amazing and cool the universe was to make this meeting between myself and this special kid Nick Miller come true. Let’s always take a moment to count our blessings… ‘cause there’s always something to be grateful for. Happy Easter y’all – DJ”
Of course, Dwayne’s random act of kindness shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone.
The Rock has been an avid supporter of organizations such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation — in fact, one of the only times the tough guy has been seen crying in public was when he met a young man, named Spud, with a degenerative heart disease, who thanked the WWE for being a hero.
In the past, Dwayne has called meeting these incredibly strong young people through Make-A-Wish and the Starlight Foundation “easily the BEST part of [his] job” — but it’s even more incredible when fate brings these fighters and their hero together!
