15-year-old Tommy Hanley is currently battling stage four cancer at home in Co. Mayo.

And last night he received this inspiring message from his hero, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.  

"This one's for my buddy Tommy Hanley. Just found out he's a huge fan, 15yrs old, living in Ireland and battling stage 4 cancer. I've never met you, but I already know so much about you and can tell you're an awesome, honourable and strong young man."

"Make sure you eat up dude and get your rest. Those two things are gonna help you stay strong during this fight. Stay being the coolest kid and always keep in mind how much you inspire all your family and friends - including me. We're all pulling for you Tommy! Stay strong and Merry Christmas to you and your family."

What a dote.
