Gal Gadot sends message of support to Seattle 'Wonder Woman' battling cancer

During her press tour for Justice League, Gal Gadot sent a special message of support to a Seattle woman.

Heather Abbott is a mother of three who’s undergoing treatment for stage 4 cancer. When one of her daughters asked to dress as Wonder Woman for Halloween, Abbott bought a matching costume and wore it to her first chemotherapy session.

It became a symbol of her own strength in fighting the disease.

Her friend, botanical artist Bridget Collins, created a Wonder Woman image out of flowers in her honor.

The image went viral on Instagram, and Gadot learned about Abbott's story.

During an interview with Evening, she asked for help in sending her support to Abbott.

“Would you mind getting some stuff so I can write her a card?” she asked. “That's so amazing. That's so great how everything happens for a reason, I think I literally saw it a day or two ago.”

Gadot’s co-star Ezra Miller, who plays The Flash, was blown away by Collins’ art.

"Seriously beautiful,” he said. “That's amazing. I honestly don't understand how parts of that are flowers."

You can see more of Collins botanical art, and follow Abbott’s journey as “ChemoWonderWoman" on Instagram.

Justice League is rated PG-13 and opens in theaters Nov. 17
