John Cena Surprises Pediatric Cancer Patient for His Birthday

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

WWE Superstar and actor John Cena visited a 7-year-old cancer patient named David Castle to usher in the patient’s birthday week.

According to WFLA, “Tammy Miller, Castle’s mom, said the superstar brought her 7-year-old lots of goodies including two WWE title belts, signed T-shirts, a signed program, signed bobblehead, hat and some of his armbands.”

Pasco County, Florida, Fire Rescue put together the birthday surprise for Castle, who turned 8 on May 10, 2020.

Castle was diagnosed in October 2019 with a Wilms tumor and still has at least a month left of chemotherapy.

Cena’s efforts of goodwill aren’t out of character, though.

Cena has granted over 650 wishes from the Make a Wish organization. The DOLITTLE voice actor has also highlighted his deep appreciation for health care workers during this pandemic.

The actor and wrestler also appears in multiple family-friendly movies.

On the red carpet for FERDINAND, Cena compared himself to the main character, “[FERDINAND] liked to use his strength to help people and I can relate to that.”

Take a look at the video below.

Cena also starred in the very family-friendly movie PLAYING WITH FIRE in 2019.
