TV talk show host Ellen of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” started a campaign asking people to dance to raise awareness for pediatric cancer under the hash tag #JustKeepDancing, and that inspired WWE superstar Daniel Bryan to show off his moves.
Ellen started the campaign after having 6-year-old brain cancer patient Braylon Beam on her show who gets through his chemo therapy and tough days by dancing.
WWE and Bryan are strong supporters of pediatric cancer with Connor’s Cure.

About Connor’s Cure
Stephanie McMahon, Paul Triple H Levesque, WWE and its fans are strong supporters of pediatric cancer care and research at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. McMahon and Levesque became involved with Children’s Hospital in 2014, when they met WWE fan Connor Michalek.
Connor, 8, was battling medulloblastoma, a rare tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord. Connor formed a special connection with McMahon and Levesque and many WWE Superstars and Divas. When Connor lost his battle with medulloblastoma in April 2014, McMahon and Levesque decided to honor him by creating Connor’s Cure, a fund within Children’s Foundation at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh that supports brain tumor research.
To date, Connor’s Cure has raised more than $630,000 and has been supported by WWE and fans all over the world.
WWE will be “going gold” throughout September to raise awareness for pediatric cancer. WWE will donate $1 to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation to benefit Connor’s Cure for every updated twitter profile picture that goes gold.
