The Rock Invites 7-Year-Old With Cancer To The ‘Baywatch’ Set So Kid Can Hang With His Idol
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is such a bro.
After word spread to the superstar about Gabriel Singleton, a seven-year-old cancer patient who frequently wrote handwritten letters to get Johnson to visit him in the hospital, The Rock has done the youngster one better, not only replying, but actually inviting Gabriel to the Baywatch via Instagram:

Tater! Guess what buddy? I'm coming to meet you!! I want you to be my special guest on our #BAYWATCH set in Savannah, GA. Everyone on set is excited to meet you… especially the pretty girls! Uh oh😉👊🏾. Tater, not only am I super pumped to meet you, but I'm a big bald headed LUCKY DUDE to meet you as well. Big man you're way stronger than I'll ever be and you better get ready, because I hug like a bear! Can't wait to meet you Tater and your family big man! Stay strong! Your buddy ~ DJ PS: Your nickname "Tater" is almost as cool as "Rock". Actually it's way cooler. 👊🏾💯
Gabriel gained a ton of support when people were sharing his photos of his letters on Facebook, and the hard work and dedication has paid off, leading to him meeting his idol.
Battling neuroblastoma for years, Gabriel’s mother, LuLu, said that “Tater” still has traces of cancer in his bone marrow and bones, but that there are no signs of it in his stomach, which is where it was originally.
Here’s to hoping The Rock provides a little extra luck and that the cancer disappears from Gabriel altogether soon.
