The Chainsmokers took to social media today (Feb. 27) to post a moving story about a video they sent to a young man battling cancer who could no longer attend their show in London.

In the message, which you can read in full below, Alex Pall recounts receiving an email requesting a “stay strong” video for the sick man to lift his spirits. They fulfilled the request and then found out that he had sadly passed away one day after receiving the video.

The duo ends their post by calling on others to perform small acts of kindness. “Today just think about how much better it is to go that little bit extra and do something positive.”
