The Rock had these kind words to say to an Irish cancer patient on Twitter

Just another reason to love The Rock…

JOE has just been made aware of this heart-warming story that involves a WWE legend, a young Irishman battling cancer and a VERY thoughtful sister…

Former Belvedere College and DCU student, Marc Owens, has had his fair share of ups and downs over the past few years as he has unfortunately had the though task of battling Stage IV soft tissue sarcoma; a particularly aggressive and rare form of cancer.

According to MarcOwensMedicalFund.com, “Stage IV soft tissue sarcoma is a particularly aggressive and rare form of cancer, of which there are less than 200 known cases worldwide. In a matter of days, this fun-loving, sports-mad, happy-go-lucky boy had become a cancer patient with dismal prospects.”

Recently, Marc’s sister Aisling got onto The Rock’s management company explaining Marc’s story and asked if the big man could send a message of support to her older brother.

So, being the legend that he is, The Rock obliged.

Marc was unsurprisingly overwhelmed by The Rock’s tweet…

Fair play to Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and if you want to find out more about Marc’s condition and his story, or if you fancy donating a few quid to the cause, make sure to check out MarcOwensMedicalFund.com.
