Hugh Jackman made the dreams of a woman fighting breast cancer come true during his “The Man. The Music. The Show.” gig in Perth Wednesday night.
Kylie Beard, who has had seven rounds of chemotherapy so far, was holding a sign that read: “Please hug me, Hugh. My boobs are trying to kill me,” which grabbed the actor’s attention.
Appearing on 9News Perth after the concert, Beard gushed: “It was my dream to have met him.”
She also urged other women to get checked, revealing how she must now undergo a double mastectomy after finding out she has the BRCA gene.
Beard is hoping to have her final chemo treatment Thursday.
The story hit home for Jackman, who has also had a few cancer scares.
The most recent incident he disclosed was in 2017 when he had a sixth skin cancer removed from his nose.
