John Cena grants wish to girl after social media helps spread message

You can boo him all you want and you can chant “Cena sucks” as well but there’s no denying that WWE Superstar John Cena has one of the biggest hearts of all.

Brittany Depew, a 20 year old northern Kentucky girl, posed for a photo yesterday as she lays in a hospital bed with a sign that reads, “My leukemia is past the stage of being cured. I (heart) U John Cena. #NeverGiveUp.”

Thousands of people retweeted the image which eventually went viral and John Cena noticed. The former WWE champion recorded a personal video message to Brittany, congratulating her on graduating high school and then singing her happy birthday even though he said he knows it’s a bit early.

WCPO Cincinnati, the news channel that covered the story, also published a photo of Brittany as she is covered with John Cena merchandise, something that Cena sent overnight.

“Often, sadly enough, social media is a haven for bullying and negativity. Today, a group of strangers used it for something wonderful,” Cena wrote on his Twitter.
