El luchador y actor Dwyane 'The Rock' Johnson ha estado ocupado preparándose para Wrestlemania y Baywatch.

Johnson interrumpió su actividad del domingo al visitar a un aficionado llamado Christopher al hospital.

THE ROCK VISITA A PACIENTE

So I called an audible and went to visit Christopher. Glad we did... While I was visiting the Pediatric Specialty Ward surprising the kids, I got word from my team that there was a mom who was pleading with our production staff, that I go upstairs to her son's room to give him a much needed big surprise. Since he's older he's in the main hospital and not in pediatric care. We were shooting #BAYWATCH scenes outside of the hospital, but instead of heading back to shoot I called the audible, put production on hold and went upstairs to see this young man. I walked in and his smile lit up the room! And I mean lit that room up!;) We talked for a while about his family, his school and how hard he's working to eventually graduate AND we talked about how COOL all his scars are from his multiple surgeries - from his head to his chest - those scars are badges of honor and the reminder of how beyond tough this kid is. Right before I left his mom looked at him and said, "Christopher I can't give you anything, but I'm so happy I could give you this today..." and she started to breakdown, which was captured in this pic. Made me think to give so much credit to these parents who would do anything to take their kid's pain away and ANYTHING to bring a smile to their faces. As a papa bear I understand. Glad this mom brought a smile to Christopher's face. And glad I got a chance to shake the hand of this very strong and inspiring young man. Stay strong Christopher and show them scars with pride. You're the man! ~ DJ

"Mientras estaba visitando 'Pediatric Specialty Ward' sorprendiendo a niños, me enteré, por parte de mi equipo, que había una mamá que estaba pidiendo a nuestro staff de trabajo, para que subiera al cuarto de su hijo. Si es más grande no estaba en pediatría.

Estabamos filmando #BAYWATCH, afuera del hopsital, pero en lugar de regresar, hice cambio de planes y fui arriba para ver a dicho joven".

El mensaje final de Johnson para Christopher fue "sigue fuerte Christohper, muestra tus cicatrices con orgullo".
