“Take a moment to hug your kids.”
I know you probably don’t need any more of a reason to love Chris Pratt, but I’ve got an emotional one for you today so hold tight and grab some tissues.
After dropping into Brazil for an Avengers: Infinity War fan event, Chris is now in New York.

And while in the city, he met up and hung out with 16-year-old cancer patient Jake.
Pictures that were uploaded to Jake’s Instagram were captioned by Chris. After saying that the pair were “kicking it in New York City”, Chris added an emotional message, telling people to “take a moment to hug your kids”.
The message is even more heartbreaking as Chris also revealed that the 16-year-old has chosen to stop treatment and is currently ticking things off his bucket list.
It turns out that one of the things on Jake’s list, besides “meeting the star of his fav movie”, was to get his hair and makeup done, and Chris was more than happy to help check that one off.
Chris captioned the photo with some details of Jake’s journey and how they were “living that glam life” while getting pampered.
As well as helping with the hair and makeup wish, Chris also nudged people to follow Jake on Instagram and help him reach another bucket list goal of getting as many followers as possible.
The goal definitely seems to be working, as in the time it took to write this post, Jake’s followers increased by 1000… and then 3000… and then 5000… and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon!
You can follow Jake on Instagram to keep up with his journey here. I mean, you wouldn’t want to disappoint Chris Pratt, right?
