About Connor's Cure
Stephanie McMahon, Paul "Triple H" Levesque, WWE and its fans are strong supporters of pediatric cancer research. Stephanie and Paul became passionate about pediatric cancer research when they met WWE fan, Connor Michalek. Connor, 8, was battling medulloblastoma, a rare tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord. Connor formed a special connection with Stephanie and Paul and many WWE Superstars. When Connor lost his battle with medulloblastoma in April 2014, Stephanie and Paul decided to honor him by creating Connor's Cure, a fund at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
The partnership between Connor's Cure and the V Foundation for Cancer Research expanded Connor's Cure outside of the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh to support top research centers and hospitals nationwide. To date, Connor's Cure has helped raise nearly $3.5 million and assisted more than 500 families around the world.
As a result of this partnership, funds raised by WWE will support Connor's Cure through the V Foundation's grant-making process. The V Foundation's Scientific Advisory Committee, comprised of world-class physicians and research scientists, reviews and awards top-rated grant proposals from the nation's leading medical facilities. In addition, funding will continue to support the research being done at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.
