Famed wrestling artist Rob Schamberger teamed with WWE and Stone Cold Steve Austin to put an end to pediatric brain and spinal cancer.
Schamberger donated his painting of Stone Cold -- which he painted during WWE SummerSlam Weekend in August in Los Angeles -- for a WWE auction with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, benefiting Connor’s Cure.
The cause is named after WWE superfan Connor The Crusher Michalek, an 8 year-old boy who died 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.
Schamberger said, “I couldn't be more proud and humbled to be a part of such an amazing cause. Connor 3:16 says we’re going to whoop cancer’s ass!”
