Dwayne Johnson is one of the nicest people on the planet. Although The Rock was a cocky and sometimes evil character, DJ is one of the many celebrities out there doing good. Most recently, he sent a touching message to a young fan suffering from Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Luna Perrone is a ten-year-old girl from Palm Beach who sent a beautiful video to The Rock. She claimed she had a dream where he invited her into his bakery and gave her a taste of his coconut banana pancakes and the Rock Toast from Los Angeles’ Brique French Toastery.

The Rock responded to Luna‘s video with an equally touching message, thanking her for the kind words and claiming that he’s now her biggest fan, literally and figuratively. The link for Luna’s Go Fund Me campaign is here.

“This message goes out to a very special young girl. She’s very beautiful, and she is so very strong. She’s battling a rare form of bone cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma. Her name is Luna. Luna, I just received your beautiful video as I’m driving in my pickup truck. I watched it, very safely, by the way. Thank you for the beautiful words. You are such an inspiration to everyone around you, and now to me.”

“I’m your biggest fan, literally ’cause I’m like six foot twelve and fifty tons; I’m a dinosaur. But Luna, your dream was awesome. I’m going to give you the recipe for the famous Rock Pancakes. I am also going to find a way to send you the famous Rock Toast and I also have some other surprises coming for you too, Luna. Thank you for the beautiful words. I’m pulling for you, the world is now pulling for you too.”

The chances of seeing The Rock back in WWE grow lesser and lesser as the weeks go by. Dwayne Johnson‘s Hollywood schedule is unreal and the hard work he puts into preparing for roles does not allow him to make appearances in his former home.

Before The Rock can say ‘Finally! The Rock has come back to WWE’, he has a bunch of gigantic projects coming up this summer and next year. First is a Disney adventure movie called Jungle Cruise, featuring the former WWE Champion, English actress Emily Blunt and Jake Whitehall.

In 2022, we will witness Dwayne Johnson’s entry into the DC Universe when he plays Black Adam in the movie of the same name. He’s also cast in Shawn Levy’s sci-fi comedy Free Guy and will star alongside Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds in Red Notice. Shockingly, he wasn’t a part of the ninth Fast and the Furious movie.
