I wish to meet John Cena

Wish Kid David

“ I chose this as my wish because he is my hero... ”


- Wish Kid David

When the wish granting volunteers met with David, 8, of Brookings, it was clear what his wish was. David wished to meet his favorite WWE Star, John Cena. His wish came true when he and his family traveled to St. Louis, MO, in July 2012.

David faces a heart condition, but doesn’t let that slow him down.  While in St. Louis he had the chance to attend WWE’s Monday Night RAW, where he met John Cena.  He also enjoyed time at Six Flags.

John Cena has granted more than 300 wishes, more than any celebrity, to Make-A-Wish® kids across the country.  He was recognized for this accomplishment at the National Make-A-Wish ABLE Conference October 16-19, 2012 in Glendale, AZ.

David’s wish was made possible by an anonymous donor.
