We’re extremely sad to have to pass along a story from Fox8.com that Dylan Christian, a 12-year-old boy who John Cena met with at the RAW taping in Cleveland and then invited to WrestleMania, passed away on Thursday. Dylan was fighting cancer for the fourth time. R.I.P Dylan.
We noted a few months back that 12 year old Dylan Christian from Cleveland, Ohio wanted to meet his hero John Cena when WWE returned to Cleveland for last month’s RAW Supershow. Dylan has had a total of 4 types of cancer and lost an eye to the disease. He also lost his mother last year after a cancer diagnosis. FOX 8 and people in Cleveland were working hard to arrange the meeting and it finally happened last month.
Cena then offered Dylan and his family round-trip tickets to attend WrestleMania 28 in Miami but the trip depended on Dylan’s health.
Cena wrote the following on Twitter at the time:
“Thanks @fox8news and as always thanks to #makeawish for making great things happen. Ill see Dylan at #WM28″
