John Cena Grants 400th Wish for ‘Make-a-Wish’
A banner on Make-a-Wish‘s website currently reads: “We would like to thank John Cena for his commitment to Make-A-Wish, and congratulate him on being the first celebrity to grant 400 wishes!”
If you’re not familiar with Make-a-Wish‘s work, you can visit their website here. In brief, however, this incredible organization helps grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Often, these wishes may include meeting a celebrity or hero.
Cena granted his 400th wish for the foundation when recently meeting 9 year old Mark, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Josh deBerge, a spokesperson for Make-A-Wish, told Yahoo!, regarding a meeting with Cena being such a popular wish, “I think it boils down to the fact that John connects with children in a really special way, I think that (the kids) have seen not only how he performs in the ring but they’ve seen the great things he’s done outside the ring.”
