Bradley wishes to go to WrestleMania

Bradleys WWE Wish

“ For Bradley, wrestling has been such an important part of his life. What an opportunity for him to meet with his real-life hero. ”


- Bradley's Mom

  • Bradley , 18

    • chronic lung disease
    • I want to meet with John Cena!
  • I wish to meet

It is not enough to say that Bradley is passionate about wrestling; he is a wrestling fanatic.  Bradley has a number of severe conditions, along with his qualifying disease (chronic lung disease), including congenital heart disease.  He has had many treatments, including a reconstructive surgery of the trachea.  His conditions have triggered a number of developmental delays.  But the one thing in his life (aside from his family) that has kept him going through the tough times, the pain and the loss of so much joy in life, has been wrestling.  His bedroom is decorated with wrestling posters; his bed is custom-made to look like a wrestling ring.  His favorite wrestler is John Cena.

So, of course, his one true wish was to go to WrestleMania, which was granted on April 1, 2012.  His Mom, though not a wrestling fan herself, was ecstatic about her son having the opportunity to have this experience, which is all he could think about and talk about since he learned that his wish would be granted.  His wish experience included a dinner/private autograph signing, as well as a Circle of Champions Luncheon hosted by a surprise WWE superstar John Cena at Jungle Island.

Bradley will always cherish the time he spent with John Cena whom he has admired all his life. It was a real treat for his family to see him so completely happy. ”
