A 7-year-old boy battling cancer has a wish to meet his hero, who happens to be a Bay Area native.
Gabriel Singleton also known as "Tater" wants to meet Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Tater diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma September of 2011. He has been battling cancer ever since.
Tater's family posted a message to the Rock on Facebook. In the message Tater says, "Losing my hair made me sad, but seeing you rock your bald head made it easier! I think you are strong, but I am very strong too. I've been stuck by hundreds of needles, have had tons of shots, gone through eight surgeries, too many blood and platelet transfusion, lots and lots of chemo treatments, radiation therapy, tests, scans and two stem cell transplants. You inspire me with your positive attitude."
Tater's mom tells KTVU, "He looks up to The Rock because he views him as being strong and brave. He says that The Rock always protects people and that's something he admires a lot."
Tater is aksing everyone on Facebook to share his message in the hopes that The Rock will come visit him.
