WATCH: Channing Tatum Sends Video Kiss And Sings For Teen Fighting Cancer

Truth rating: 10

By Daniel Gates



Alisa Finley, a teenager diagnosed with stage-4 brain cancer, has put together a 48-item “bucket list” of things she’d like to experience, and getting a kiss from Channing Tatum was at the top. Thanks to the actor, she can check it off.

Tatum heard about Finley’s wish and sent her a video message (see below), telling her to “just know that you’re loved,” giving her a kiss, and then cutting to a clip of himself and wife Jenna Dewan on Oscars night, singing Finley some of Pharrell’s “Happy.” It’s really sweet.

Update: Alisa Finley passed away several months later in September, an respectfully the video was removed by Tatum. Our thoughts and prayers go our to Finley’s family and friends.
