All 7-year-old Gabriel Singleton wanted was to meet his hero. At such a young age, the boy had already been through so much. His battle with cancer went from bad to worse when it spread from his stomach to his bone marrow and bones. The 2nd grader had to undergo multiple chemotherapy treatments as well as stem cell transplants.
Someone that Gabriel always looked to for strength was Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, because he’s “strong and brave”, according to Gabriel. The young boy, who liked to go by “Tater” especially loved watching the Fast and Furious movies, because The Rock plays a police officer in them, and Tater was a big fan of police officers.
After undergoing chemotherapy, Tater lost all of his hair, which often made him feel insecure. “He was kind of embarrassed about his bald head. So I would pull up The Rock’s Instagram account and I’d say, Look! The Rock is bald and he’s so strong and he’s awesome. You’re just like him.” his mother, LuLu Singleton said.
That’s why Lulu and Tater decided to post a photo on social media explaining Tater’s story in the hopes that The Rock would see it, and realize what an amazing fan he had.
It worked! Not only did The Rock discover Tater’s story, but he even paid the super fan a visit.
“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…” The Rock wrote on his Instagram account.
