"The first event I left the house for after having my tumors removed was a local wrestling show," said Taylor Armstrong, paraganglioma patient and Board Member of The Pheo Para Alliance. "I've loved pro wrestling my entire life, and it's always been there for me when I needed it. When it's at its best, I firmly believe it to be the pinnacle of entertainment and storytelling. This event is an opportunity for pro wrestling to do for other patients and members of the community what it's already done for me. The talent on board and matches we'll be announcing soon are incredible; but what I'm looking forward to most is raising the profile of this rare and relatively unknown disease. I was fortunate enough to catch my tumors while they were still operable, but many others haven't been so lucky. Ever since my diagnosis in 2014, I've been looking for any potential good that can come from my experiences with paraganglioma, and being able to give back with a pro wrestling event is the ultimate dream come true."
