Bryan Cranston recently made a special Skype connection with “Breaking Bad” fan Brad Joyner, who is terminally ill with cancer.

The 19-year-old Joyner had been hoping to meet Cranston ever since he received his diagnosis six months ago.

His friends and family started a campaign to get Cranston’s attention, using the hashtag #BreakingBrad.

On Saturday, Joyner’s mother Aimee Pettigrew revealed on Facebook that the mission had been a success.

She wrote, “Soo Bryan Cranston is FABULOUS! He skyped with Brad Joyner for over 30 min!!! The whole family watched as the 50 inch screen showed us Bryan’s smiling face.”

“The end of the skype? Bryan Cranston ordered an Icecream truck to arrive in Brads honor and our whole neighborhood enjoyed Icecream with Brad. ‪#‎breakingbrad‬. ‪#‎GODis‬ bigger than cancer,” continued Pettigrew.

She also shared heartwarming video of Joyner finding out he would meet Cranston, and of the meeting itself.
