Early Breakfast with Jenni Falconer 4am - 6am
The Jurassic World star is helping 16-year-old Jacob tick three things off his bucket list.
Sixteen year old Jacob Monday is suffering from a rare form of bone cancer.
Sadly, the teen has decided to give up on treatment and instead focus his energy on ticking things off his bucket list and he's recruited none other than Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic Word star, Chris Pratt, to help.
The 38-year-old actor shared some heartwarming snaps of him and Jacob on Instagram to help tick off one of his goals - get lots of followers.
