Dwayne Johnson is more than just a top Hollywood celeb with majorly large arms. The actor has a heart—and it might just be bigger than his pecks!

Johnson recently posted a sweet video on Instagram, singing “You’re Welcome” from Moana. The actor, who voiced Maui in the movie, dedicated the song to a three-year-old boy with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

There’s a little 3 year old boy out there named, Hyrum Harris. Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia which is complicated by Down Syndrome. In the fight of his life right now and doing his best to stay strong – by watching MOANA up to 10xs a day because the character he loves, 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. I STRONG. Love, the Rock aka the dude who sounds a lot like Maui.

The actor started off the post writing, “This request came across my desk and punched me in the gut a bit.” Johnson explained, “There’s a little 3 year old boy out there named, Hyrum Harris. Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia which is complicated by Down Syndrome. In the fight of his life right now and doing his best to stay strong—by watching MOANA up to 10xs a day because the character he loves, MAUI makes him feel strong.”

Hyrum’s mother, April, opened up to PEOPLE about the post, saying, “This has been such a moving experience for our family.” She went on to add, “[Johnson’s] response was beautiful.”

Of course, Hyrum absolutely adored the video. Mom, April, explained, “Every time Dwayne mentioned Hyrum’s name, Hyrum pointed to his chest and in his soft sweet voice repeated saying, ‘Hyrum,’ as though he knew this was special for him.”
