Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has personally reached out to reality television star Ashley Cain whose daughter is currently battling leukemia.
Cain, who has featured on programmes such as Ex On The Beach and The Challenge, has spent every living second of the past eight months looking after his daughter Azaylia in hospital.
But it was recently revealed that doctors had given her just a matter of days to live.
Upon hearing this, WWE megastar-turned-Hollywood actor Johnson took it upon himself to send a powerful and heart-warming message of support to Cain via social media.
"Hey, brother. Ashley, DJ here," Johnson said in a video message shared on Cain's own Instagram.
"First of all, the universe and God works in powerful, amazing, beautiful, mysterious ways. I rarely check my DMs and a friend of yours DM'd me and I just happened to pick up her message and it sent me to your page. I want to tell you, first of all, I'm so sorry to hear about your beautiful daughter Azaylia.
"You tell that little lion I said let's go champ, and to stay strong.
"I don't have to tell you that your daughter's strength is what strengthens you... she's already had an incredible impact on the world.
"Stay strong brother, my heart breaks for you."
Cain, who used to play professional football for Coventry City, has been using his platform on social media to share updates on Azaylia's condition.
And after recently launching a GoFundMe to help pay for Azaylia's treatments, Cain and his partner were met with an overwhelming response from the public who raised over 1.5million pounds (AU$2.7million) in such a short space of time.
And update on the page said: "We're absolutely delighted to have raised over one million pounds in less than 24 hours! We are so overwhelmed by the support we have received and cannot begin to express our deep gratitude and thanks to you all. There's an old proverb that says 'it takes a village to raise a child' and YOU are our village. Without your kind and generous donations Azaylia would not be able to get the treatment she so desperately needs."
And the support didn't stop there either.
If people couldn't donate for whatever reason, instead they shared Azaylia's story on their own social media channels to raise awareness for her.
