Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson said he teared up after hearing the story of a young fan he met on Easter Sunday.

Johnson said he was driving when he noticed a group of kids running and yelling behind his truck. He stopped and got out to see what was going on.

Johnson shared what happened next with all of his followers on Facebook.



"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."

The two took a picture together, flashing their muscles.

Johnson said he hugged the boy and his friends, then got back in his 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," Johnson wrote.

The experience obviously moved Johnson and his fans. His sweet post has well over 2 million likes and more than 75 thousand people shared the photo.

"Let's always take a moment to count our blessings... cause there's always something to be grateful for. Happy Easter y'all," Johnson wrote.
