WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Creative and Live Events, Paul Triple H Levesque have announced the formation of “Connor’s Cure,” a charity that they have personally funded through the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation named in honor of Pittsburgh native Connor Michalek.
WWE’s biggest fan, Connor passed away at age 8 earlier this year from Medulloblastoma, a rare tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord.
Donations to Connor’s Cure will provide funds for pediatric brain and spinal cancer research, and medical care for children and their families.
Through the love of his family and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Connor persevered over his affliction. His fighting spirit made him a local celebrity in Pittsburgh, including getting Superstar treatment from the Pittsburgh Pirates and WWE. Although Connor lost his battle to cancer, his message of light and love continue to thrive.
Never miss a local story.
