We love a feel good story, almost as much as we love a celeb who is happy to take some time out and meet his fans – and The Rock has provided us with both this weekend.
The star of box office smashing Furious 7 was out and about over Easter and caught the attention of a group of fans – and after stopping, found himself face to face with a super fan who was using The Rock as his inspiration in his fight against cancer!
The Rock posted a picture along with a caption explaining all about the meeting.
Cool story to share on Easter.. After my workout I’m drivin’ in my pick up and notice these kids in the rearview mirror screamin’ & runnin’ after my truck. Thought to myself, “Should I stop or keep drivin’?” 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 hard core 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), got back in my truck and drove away.
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 kid Nick Miller. Let’s always take a moment to count our blessings.. cause there’s always something to be grateful for. Happy Easter y’all – DJ
We love this – and think The Rock is one cool dude!
