About Connor's Cure The story of one little boy, Connor Michalek, has inspired a universe. Connor’s Cure, established at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation in 2014, was created by Paul “Triple H” Levesque, Executive Vice President, Talent, Live Events and Creative, and Stephanie McMahon, Chief Brand Officer, to honor the irrepressible spirit of this special little boy. WWE and Connor’s Cure raises funds to support pediatric cancer research. Battling medulloblastoma, a rare tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord, 8-year-old Connor left quite the impression on those he encountered. With a quick wit and infectious grin, Connor melted even the toughest WWE Superstar's and Divas' hearts. In 2016, after raising nearly $1 million, Connor’s Cure has expanded their partnership with Children’s Foundation to gain an important new ally - The V Foundation for Cancer Research. This exciting partnership will continue to achieve research breakthroughs so that no child suffers as Connor did.Children’s Foundation is honored that we will continue to be a beneficiary of Connor’s Cure. Because of the partnership with The V Foundation, this support will be extended nationally to additional researchers seeking a cure for pediatric cancer. Like you, our ultimate goal is to effectively change the way we treat pediatric cancer forever. Please note, donations will be collected through The V Foundation’s website, however Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC will continue to receive funding from this partnership.
