Dwayne Johnson is one buff and tough looking dude, but appears to have a heart of gold.
He took to social media to share a touching moment with a fan named Nick Miller, who told him he inspired him in his cancer fight.
Johnson shared the emotional story on his Instagram:
“After my workout, I’m drivin’ in my pick up and notice these kids in the rearview mirror screamin’ and runnin’ after my truck. Thought to myself, ‘Should I stop or keep driving’?” he wrote.
The Furious 7 actor decided to stop his truck, saying, “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 hard core chemo and stem cell transplant treatments.”
The Rock continued, “Miller 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”
Dwayne thanked him and hugged him and his friends before driving away, revealing that was when Miller’s story really hit him.
He said, “As I’m drivin’ 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 happen between myself and this special kids Nick Miller.”
He ended the Instagram post with a touching message, “Let’s always take a moment to count our blessings.. cause there’s always something to be grateful for”.
