WWE United States Champion John Cena granted his 500th wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation on NBC’s “Today” show earlier today. Below is video of Cena meeting Rocco Lanzer, an 8 year old who was diagnosed with Leukemia in January. Cena visited Rocco in the hospital a few months ago but Rocco was too sick.
“A lot of times when people donate time or resources, there’s a little speculation about where it goes. I’m at the finish line. I get to see the families; I get to see the joy and the hope that we bring. I’ll continue to be involved with Make-A-Wish as long as they’ll have me.”
Cena brought Rocco WWE gear including tickets to an upcoming RAW. There will be an event at Dave & Buster’s Time Square in New York City on Friday to celebrate Cena’s 500th wish with Cena, Stephanie McMahon, Sheamus and The Bella Twins.
