We’re all about celebrities taking time out of their busy schedules to go visit kids in the hospital which is why we’re so thrilled Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Star Wars star John Boyega did just that last weekend!
John adorably stopped by the Royal London Hospital to visit some kids as his The Force Awakens character Finn and have the kids teach him all about Earth.
As for Dwayne, he not only went to Savannah’s Pediatric Specialty Ward at Memorial Health Hospital, but he also “called the audible” and put his Baywatch production on hold to visit another kid. Awww!
Ch-ch-check out the stars AH-Mazing Instagram Posts (below) and see their touching words!
This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I’m just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper. ├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬ÅA photo posted by @john_boyega on Mar 13, 2016 at 4:01pm PDT

I surprised the children at Savannah’s Pediatric Specialty Ward aaaaand look at the concentration on lil’ Aiden’s face!├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬ì├░┼╕┬Å┬╛. We shot #BAYWATCH scenes at Memorial Health Hospital and thought I’d pop up to the ward. Awesome experience and THANK YOU to all the hard working and caring staff who helped make this visit possible. To all the kids I met – you guys keep smiling and staying strong. All the mamas and daddy’s I met, y’all stay strong too. Gotta tell ya little stuff like this will always be the best part of fame. And good Lord I wish I had Aiden’s concentration when I was in my high school math classes. I wouldn’t have failed Algebra twice. ├░┼╕╦£ΓÇÜ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬Å├░┼╕┬Å┬╛├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬ì├░┼╕┬Å┬╛├░┼╕ΓÇÖ┬»A photo posted by therock (@therock) on Mar 12, 2016 at 7:41am PST
So I called an audible and went to visit Christopher. Glad we did… While I was visiting the Pediatric Specialty Ward surprising the kids, I got word from my team that there was a mom who was pleading with our production staff, that I go upstairs to her son’s room to give him a much needed big surprise. Since he’s older he’s in the main hospital and not in pediatric care. We were shooting #BAYWATCH scenes outside of the hospital, but instead of heading back to shoot I called the audible, put production on hold and went upstairs to see this young man. I walked in and his smile lit up the room! And I mean lit that room up!;) We talked for a while about his family, his school and how hard he’s working to eventually graduate AND we talked about how COOL all his scars are from his multiple surgeries – from his head to his chest – those scars are badges of honor and the reminder of how beyond tough this kid is. Right before I left his mom looked at him and said, “Christopher I can’t give you anything, but I’m so happy I could give you this today…” and she started to breakdown, which was captured in this pic. Made me think to give so much credit to these parents who would do anything to take their kid’s pain away and ANYTHING to bring a smile to their faces. As a papa bear I understand. Glad this mom brought a smile to Christopher’s face. And glad I got a chance to shake the hand of this very strong and inspiring young man. Stay strong Christopher and show them scars with pride. You’re the man! ~ DJA photo posted by therock (@therock) on Mar 13, 2016 at 8:36am PDT
Talk about making our hearts melt!
They may not be Captain America and Star Lord, but we think it’s phenomenal for any celeb to take the time and do this!
