The Rock is a very busy man, but he was able to make time recently for a fan who has been battling stage four lung cancer.

Fox 9 reports that Dwayne Johnson sent a personalized video to a woman in Red Wing named Christy Rikli. She turns 50 on Saturday and has been battling cancer for over a year now. Rikli is also a huge fan of The Rock.

She didn’t expect a personalized message from The Great One, but he took the time to send her a video from the gym. Where else would The Rock be?

Christy’s friends sent Johnson a letter to explain her situation. It hit home with The Rock and he replied with a video.


After thanking her for being such a huge fan, he said that she is “an inspiration to everyone around” her including himself. The video was only about two minutes long, but it meant the world to Christy Rikli, that’s for sure.

You can check out the news report from Fox 9 below which includes The Rock’s personalized video message.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
