Nicole Kidman has promised to make the dream of meeting Angelina Jolie come true for a cancer-stricken child.

The Australian actress has agreed to bring GIRL, INTERRUPTED beauty Jolie to six-year-old Australian DYLAN HARTUNG's bedside, after she visited him twice last week (begs15AUG05) in Manhattan, New York City where he is receiving treatment for a rare form of neuroblastoma.

Hartung's mother says of Kidman's first visit, "She said she was on her way to work and just happened to have the New York Post in front of her. She said, 'I want to meet this kid'.

"He told Nicole that he had two wishes: to beat cancer and meet Angelina Jolie."

Kidman, who promised to take Hartung to the cinema, returned three days later and accompanied the youngster to The Dukes of Hazzard.

His mother comments, "I still can't get over how wonderful and down-to-earth Nicole is.

"She... kept thanking us for letting her meet Dylan."
