The Rock Fulfills 'Moana' Wish for 3-Year-Old Fighting Leukemia in the Sweetest Way

Dwayne Johnson

Leave it to The Rock to do something totally heartwarming like this -- all for a Moana fan. This week, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson surprised a cancer patient who's all about The Rock's character, Maui, from the movie ... and it resulted in the sweetest video ever. 

This had to totally make this kid's day.

  • On Monday, The Rock shared a video for Hyrum Harris, a 3-year-old suffering from both leukemia and Down syndrome. 

    It seems that Hyrum is inspired to be strong by Maui in Moana, so The Rock wanted to do something special for him -- and that meant recording a video of him sending his love to Hyrum and singing his song from the movie, "You're Welcome."

    "Hyrum, I know I'm a complete stranger to you -- who sounds a lot like your hero, MAUI (only with a very large head), but myself along with millions of other strangers who will watch this video are sending you so much love, strength and mana your way," Dwayne wrote.

    So sweet!

  • Later, The Rock shared an update from Hyrum's family, and he LOVED the video. 

    Looks like Hyrum and the other people around him in the hospital were really lifted up by The Rock's gesture. Look at that sweet, smiling face!

    "Look at this lil’ boy, Hyrum’s face. That’s some joy real right there," The Rock wrote. "Thank you to the person who wrote this beautiful note. You’re absolutely right - joy and hope cost nothing and yet, is the most powerful gift we can give. Thats the real magic to life." 


  • Fans are loving what The Rock does, and sending well wishes Hyrum's way.

    Facebook comments

    These comments are so sweet. How awesome that The Rock was able to help Hyrum out -- and brighten so many other people's days in the process.

    Seriously, we do not deserve this man!

  • We're sending Hyrum all the positive thoughts. 

    And of course, we're happy to find out that The Rock is exactly who we always thought he was: a very sweet guy who is willing to go the extra mile for his fans, especially the tiniest ones.

    If everyone can excuse us, we've gotta go watch Moana again. 

    We're feeling inspired.
