Hugh JackmanKristian Anderson wanted a birthday surprise with a difference for his wife Rachel to thank her for supporting him through chemotherapy. What he came up with was a heartfelt personal video featuring cameos by Hugh Jackman and New Zealand Prime Minister John Key.

35-year-old Kristian from Australia had been diagnosed with cancer last year and had asked a local radio show host to help him get Jackman and Key to appear in the birthday message (his wife is from New Zealand). He then posted the video on a blog he set up to share information about his health with friends and family.

Anderson can also be seen in the video using large white cards to send messages to his wife, saying things such as, 'Without you... Life just doesn't work. I need you like I need a cure for cancer'.

In October 2009, Kristian was diagnosed with bowel cancer that spread to his liver. In a radio interview he urged people not to put off seeing their doctor saying, "If I had got tests done when I first suspected something, I might have only had bowel cancer and they could have just gone straight in and cut it out... It doesn't matter if it's nothing but the best thing you can do is find out it's nothing."
