This past Easter The Rock shared an inspirational story about crossing paths with Nick Miller, a young man who was battling cancer and found strength through Johnson’s positive, no-quit, approach to life. Miller, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, told The Rock that he was his inspiration to beat the cancer.
No doubt, it was a memorable story, but it didn’t end there. Earlier today, The Rock once again ran into Nick who had some even better news to share. Turns out, the kid’s initial meeting with Johnson has led to some life-altering events, including several speaking engagements at various schools. And to top things off, Nick told The Rock he’s been officially cancer free for two years.
Just goes to show you what good can come if you’re willing to fight for yourself. And of course it doesn’t hurt to get some extra inspiration from The Rock. Check out Johnson’s take on the latest interaction in his Instagram post below.

Great update to a cool story… I just ran into @giraffe_boy again. The first time we met months ago he was running after my pick up truck (literally running behind my truck thru the parking lot) and I thought it was an excited fan.. I stopped the truck and had an inspiring once in a lifetime moment. He told me he'd been battling Hodgkins Lymphoma and though we had never met, he said that he'd been trying to shake my hand and tell me I was his inspiration to beat it. Well I happened to run into Nick again and he told me since I posted our pic on Instagram along with our story that made national headlines – his life had completely changed. He's become a source for inspiration and hope for people around the world going thru their tough times. He's been asked to speak to kids at schools and the best part he told me…. he's been cancer free for two years now. Hell yeah bud! I always say it, but moments like this with fans will always be the best part of my job. And what a helluva reminder for us all to count our blessings.. cause there's always something to be grateful for. Stay strong Nick and if any of y'all are out there going thru your own challenges then you stay strong too and I hope this post helps in some small way. ~ DJ
