Williams recorded the video above for terminally ill fan Vivian Waller of Auckland, New Zealand. Waller, a mother of a one-year-old, was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer this past January, which has spread to her liver and lungs. One of the items on Williams' "wish list" was meeting Robin Williams. Waller was too ill to visit Williams' in the United States, so the actor sent her this touching video message instead.

Waller is now in hospice care. She previously was receiving donations for medical treatment through a Givealittle online campaign, but is now requesting donations be made for her daughter Sophia's future instead. You can learn more about Waller's journey below.
