Cool Easter story, bro
First Posted: 4/5/2015
Fans of Dwayne Johnson just caught a whiff of what “The Rock” is cooking and it’s a lesson to count your blessings. The “Furious 7” star posted a pic to Instagram with a fan on Easter Sunday — and the caption wins the award for story you’ll hear all day.
“Cool story to share on Easter,” Johnson posted on his Instagram. “After my workout I’m drivin’ in my pick up and notice these kids in the rear view mirror screamin’ & runnin’ after my truck,” he continued.
What happened next just proves how dope The Rock is.
“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,” Johnson’s post added.
The Rock told him what it meant to hear the story, got back in his truck, drove away and couldn’t help but get a little emotional.
“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,” he said.
