John Cena brought to tears by fans who thanked him for changing their lives

New, comment

John Cena’s WWE career has been about more than winning championships and becoming an international superstar. He’s also dedicated over a year to service and improving the lives of children — that came full circle in a new video:

Cricket Wireless gave Cena letters from his fans, who all credited his message of perseverance as a turning point in their lives. From fans suffering physical injury to coping with mental illness — every letter writer thanked the WWE superstar for changing their lives.

Then came one final message, from a young boy named Tyler, who thanked Cena for giving his family a mantra of “Never Give Up” while his mom underwent treatment for breast cancer. It was at this point Cena broke down:

What the superstar didn’t know is that everyone who wrote him a letter was waiting to surprise him and thank him in person. It was a truly amazing moment.
