John Cena granted his 300th wish today to Hop Bottom, Pennsylavania native Jonathan Littman, setting a Make-W-Wish record. Cena is the only celebrity to reach this milestone, and remains one of the most frequently requested celebrities for the charity.
"For Make-A-Wish, WWE Superstar John Cena is essential to fulfilling our wish-granting mission," said Make-A-Wish America President and CEO David A. Williams. "For years John has hosted kids and always goes above and beyond to create wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions, who return energized and delighted by the experience. We are fortunate to have a dedicated supporter like John and WWE to bring these children hope, strength and joy as they face a difficult challenge in their young lives."
Seven-year-old Littman, who was thinking that he was headed to a studio tour of Good Morning America, was instead treated to a behind-the-scenes tour and Cena's personal seats at this past Monday's RAW. Littman then joined Cena on Good Morning America along with ABC News' weather editor Sam Champion during the weather report.
"Jonathan Littman is a tremendous young man and such an inspiration," said Cena. "Of all the tough guys I tangle with in the WWE ring, I've never encountered more bravery or toughness than I see in each wish kid I meet. Wishing is powerful stuff."
