The Rock Wrote A Heartfelt Note After Meeting A Fan With Cancer

It’s pretty well established The Rock is a great guy. But in case you needed a little more convincing, The Rock did something pretty special on Easter.

He was driving away from his gym when he saw some young people chasing his car. He stopped and spoke to them.

One of them, Nick Miller, told The Rock he was his inspiration in his fight against cancer.

Miller had been wanting to express his gratitude to The Rock for the longest time and he finally got the chance.

Here’s what The Rock posted to his Facebook page about the encounter:

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 its been his life’s dream to meet me and tell me how much Ive 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), 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
