J.J. & John Cena Never Give Up

J.J. wished to meet John Cena

“He inspires J.J. to never give up. ”

The crowd is on their feet. Thousands of eyes pierce the ring below. Noise levels explode as fans cheer for their champion. Amid the chaos, two WWE Superstars square off.

This is WWE® Monday Night Raw®.

In the ring, WWE® Superstar John Cena® struggles to retain stamina and strength. He spies one of his biggest fans in the second row, cheering and chanting his name. The sight reminds John of his own motto – to never give up.

His super fan is J.J., a young boy living with neuroblastoma. Earlier that day, J.J. and his family stepped out of a limo and entered the Raw arena. “Come on! We gotta go meet him!” he cried, leading his parents and siblings. J.J. was about to experience the joy of a wish come true – he was about to meet John Cena.

J.J. was given a gift bag filled with WWE merchandise. As he sifted through the contents, he heard a familiar voice and turned to see John in in the doorway. J.J.’s excitement swept his family away as John sat down to spend time with them.

In the ring, John finds his resolve. And he inspires J.J. to follow the WWE Superstar’s philosophy – to never give up. Not from neuroblastoma, not from anything.

More celebrities need to be like John Cena, I'm not too big into the WWE but this guy is awesome, I see him often doing things for his fans like this, trying to fight bullying and cancer. He's really taken his fame and done wonders with it!

In a day and age where most professional athletes are self absorbed, money hungry and conceited, John Cena shows us that their are truly good hearted people alive. My son is 5 and idolizes him, and for good reason. If my son ends up showing half the live resolve and good heart as John Cena, then he will be a huge success in life. Thank you John Cena for showing kids a better way. God Bless you.

Way to go John! You are doing what human beings in your position should be back.

Others like you in similar positions should take notice and follow your lead.
