- It’s very sad to report the death of 12 year old Dylan Christian. Dylan is the friend of John Cena’s who met Cena at the RAW Supershow in Cleveland months ago. Cena brought the boy and his family to WrestleMania 28. Cena talked highly about the boy in the weeks leading up to WrestleMania. This was Dylan’s fourth battle with cancer. He passed away on Thursday.
On a related note, USA Today has published an essay from Cena talking about his Make-A-Wish experiences. Here is an excerpt:
“As these kids come looking for a chance to interact with my WWE persona, they are living that moment on their terms. And they exude pure joy. Triumph. Their parents, often through tears, say the wish experience has given them their children back.
There is a lesson here for all of us. About making wishes, and about granting them.
Wishing is powerful stuff.”
