Hyrum Harris is diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia which is complicated by Down Syndrome. He's in the fight of his life right now and one of the things that keeps him going is Disney's Moana.
Sometimes he watches the film 10 times a day.
"Moana is played when he is happy, when he is sad, scared and exhausted. It is his happy place," said Hyrum's mother, April Harris. "He watches it like it is the first time every time. He sings along and mimics Maui throughout the movie."
When Johnson learned about Hyrum's situation and his passion for the movie, the actor sent a personalized video to encourage Hyrum to stay strong and also bring him a few smiles.
Johnson wrote on Instagram:
"MAUI makes him feel strong. According to Hyrum's mama, his most important thing to say now is, I STRONG.
Yes you are big man.
Yes you are.
Hyrum, I know I'm a complete stranger to you - who sounds a lot like your hero, MAUI (only with a very large head), but myself along with millions of other strangers who will watch this video are sending you so much love, strength and mana your way.
Love, the Rock aka the dude who sounds a lot like Maui."

Harris said she is "blown away" by the support from Johnson and all his fans.
"He's watched Moana over and over. It's what he does on his hardest days," she wrote on Facebook. "He watched the video from Dwayne again... while watching Moana."
