For 8-year-old Rocco from New York, his wish to meet WWE Superstar John Cena has helped keep him positive and strong during his battle against leukemia.
Rocco likes John Cena's "Never Give Up" motto and how he always wants to help people. This month, Rocco’s wish will come true, and he is excited to have the added distinction of being the 500th Make-A-Wish® kid to meet John Cena.
When he’s not in the ring, Cena dedicates much of his free time to granting life-changing wishes to Make-A-Wish kids. Cena says meeting each and every child with a life-threatening medical condition through Make-A-Wish is a special event.
In 2009, Cena received the Make-A-Wish Chris Greicius Celebrity Award for his dedication to granting wishes. He also serves on the Wish Ambassador Council for Make-A-Wish and assists in expanding wish-granting outreach across the United States.
Our sincere thanks to WWE Superstar John Cena for his continued dedication to granting wishes like Rocco’s across the country.
