From visiting children’s hospitals to inviting sick fans to the set, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has one big heart, and his latest post is yet another example. The Baywatch star is on-location in Savannah, Ga., and heard that a fan asked for him to meet her sick 1-year-old daughter. The megastar happily obliged, and posted this sweet photo from the encounter.

“Was so happy to have met lil’ Sally Walker Colins, who just turned 1,” he wrote on Instagram. “When she was 5months old she had open heart surgery and has been an inspiring lil’ fighter since that day.”

Shooting on location always draws a crowd and I got word that a mom asked if I would meet her daughter who's celebrating a very special birthday. Well I love me some birthdays so where is mama and her babies. Was so happy to have met lil' Sally Walker Collins, who just turned 1. When she was 5months old she had open heart surgery and has been an inspiring lil' fighter since that day. Her mama, Sarah here was so grateful we had a chance to meet and got teary eyed when talking about her baby and said something so simple, powerful and true.. "If Sally can fight thru this, then we can do anything." Amen. Yes you can. Real pleasure meeting this great family and if by remote chance I got teary eyed too when she was talking about her daughter's struggle - it's a good thing I had my shades on so no one would see. But of course I never cry 'cause I'm too tough for that stuff. I'm just sayin' if I did, I was prepared. Stay strong lil' Sally - you're a heart warrior and you have many many more birthdays to enjoy. And remember Uncle DJ is the coolest. 😂💙 #OnSet #BAYWATCH #SavannahGA
