Proceeds from the sale of the artwork will benefit Connor’s Cure at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, a cause central to the WWE organization. Connor’s Cure was formed in honor of Connor Michalek, a WWE fan who passed away at age 8 from medulloblastoma, a rare tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord. Donations to Connor’s Cure provide funds for pediatric brain and spinal cancer research, and medical care for children and their families.
