John Cena and Sting Greet 7-Year-Old Cancer Survivor after WWE Raw (VIDEO)
WWE has often pledged themselves to charitable causes. This month alone, they’ve raised money for Connor’s Cure, a pediatric cancer research foundation named in honor of Connor Michalek, the late WWE fan and Warrior Award Recipient at the 2015 Hall of Fame Ceremony. Since this month is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, two of WWE’s biggest stars singled out a brave survivor.
15-Time WWE Champion John Cena and WCW legend Sting greeted Kiara Grindrod, a 7-year-old girl who beat cancer. Cena’s emotional speech, which took place after Raw went off the air last night, is an absolutely beautiful tribute, and the entire segment is punctuated by the crowd’s “YES!” and “This Is Awesome” chants. I get that John Cena is a guy that a lot of people like to boo, but it’s really hard to have any sort of problem with him when he’s doing awesome stuff like this. And Sting is just as cool, giving little Kiara one of his gloves. This is a total tearjerker of a segment, so make sure you have a hanky nearby. Watch the video below:
