Not long before his suicide, Robin Williams offered a message of hope to a terminally ill woman in New Zealand.

New Zealand's Sunday-Star Times reports that Williams recorded an inspirational video a few months ago for Vivian Waller, 21, after he found out that getting to meet him was one of five things she hoped to accomplish before she died. Vivian is currently still suffering from lung, bowel and liver cancer, which she was diagnosed with in January. Williams committed suicide on Aug. 11 at age 63 and was in the early stages of Parkinson's disease, according to his wife.

"Sending all my love to you, Jack and Sophie," Williams tells Vivian in the video, referring to her husband and their one-year-old daughter. Vivian and Jack Waller were married in February, as getting married was another one of the accomplishments on her bucket list. 

"Mark this off your bucket list," Williams continues in the video. "What's going on? It's all right, it's all right, it's all right. I'm just channeling Matthew McConaughey. Much love to you, baby."

Williams concludes the video by blowing a kiss to Vivian.
