WWE star John Cena has made a young boy’s dream come true with a surprise personal visit while he is battling cancer.
Seven-year-old David Castle is suffering from Wilms’ tumour, a rare form of kidney cancer that has spread to other parts of his body.
But the youngster was reduced to “tears of joy” when the 16-time world champion surprised him with a visit his home in Florida recently.
Sharing the full story, not just the headlines
According to local media he didn’t stop there either with Cena leaving David with title belts, a signed t-shirt as well as some of his trademark sweatbands.
Cena is no stranger to this sort of gesture outside of the ring having made over 600 Make-A-Wish visits during his career.
“I said, ‘If you ever need me for this ever, I don’t care what I’m doing, I will drop what I’m doing and be involved because I think that’s the coolest thing,’” Cena told People magazine last year.
“We’ve all experienced that joy of giving a gift for the holidays where you just nail it—that’s the same gift I get in giving back to people’s lives, in being able to give them wonderful emotional moments.”
