After The Rock's gym session, he got into his truck and was heading to pick up his kids when a young male fan tried to get his attention. He successfully got The Rock's attention to the point where Rock stopped his truck and greeted the fan.

This fan, Nick Miller, told Rock that it was his live long dream to meet him and he has been his inspiration to fight cancer.

The Rock posted the following on his social media accounts:

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
