John Cena Talks Youngest Brother Beating Cancer, WWE/Susan G. Komen

Chris Cash

The Huffington Post has posted a new feature about Susan G. Komen and what WWE's involvement, especially John Cena, has meant to the foundation and it's growth. Judith A. Salerno, Komen President and CEO, said that the WWE partnership far exceeded their expectations. She added the following:

"Last year after National Breast Cancer Awareness month, we received a $1 million donation from WWE," Salerno said. "More than that, though, we were able to increase awareness about breast cancer issues among women and men, which has been a huge advantage for us… The awareness that came with the attention that John Cena gave to this issue and Susan G. Komen through WWE has been great."

In the article, John Cena also commented on his youngest brother, who had an inoperable brain tumor, but is still alive today due to early detection. Cena said: 

"He's the last of five boys, so he's the most reserved out of all of us," said Cena. "I saw what he went through though, and the treatment he had to rely upon. I saw him going through being a boy to becoming a man. What he went through keeps us so motivated. Around the family, we call him our 'silent champion.'"

Check out the full article on The Huffington Post website. The partnership between WWE and Susan G. Komen was a major focus during the month of October, the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It will soon be coming to end after what seems to be another successful and positive effort between the two parties.
